The 1st Meeting of the Civil Registrars of South Asia recently took place between 24 - 25 July in Kathmandu, Nepal. Co-organized by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in South Asia and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia-Pacific (ESCAP), the meeting brought together 22 experts from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to review areas of common interest, build bridges for future collaboration and share ideas for approaching complex CRVS issues. Most importantly, the meeting was also designed to "consider the creation of an informal network of professionals who work in civil registration in the eight South Asian countries".
