Vietnam: CRVS now part of SDG National Action Plan

The Vietnamese government has included CRVS improvements as an integral part of the National Action Plan for the implementation of the 2030 sustainable development agenda. The aim is to provide legal identification including birth registration by 2030 for all citizens in Vietnam. Particular attention will be paid to individuals living in mountainous regions, ethnic minorities and migrant people.

Part of the measures to achieve this goal is the development and operation of an electronic civil status database in all registration offices.

The full National Action Plan can be found here.
