During the 49th Commission on Population and Development the Asian-Pacific Resource & Research Centre for Women (ARROW) delivered a statement endorsed by more than 55 Civil Society Organizations from the region. Amongst the cited recommendations for the strengthening of demographic evidence, they called upon States and the international community to support the monitoring of ICPD and the SDG Agenda 2030, through establishment of functional data instruments such as civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems, censuses, and household surveys at the national level. Further to this, stakeholders should take into account the advances and innovations in Information, and Communication Technology for achieving these goals.
