As part of the reporting structure of the Regional Action Framework on Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) in Asia and the Pacific, by the end of 2015, members and associate members are required to submit a baseline report to the ESCAP Secretariat through their designated national focal point.

In October 2015, members and associate members were sent a request for a report on their national targets and baseline data. In order to facilitate the compilation of information, a template was provided to countries as well as Guidelines for setting and monitoring the goals and targets of the Regional Action Framework on Civil Registration and Vital Statistics in Asia and the Pacific. Questions from national CRVS focal points and answers on the report are compiled to assist countries.

Information on national targets and baseline data will be made available under the country profiles. In addition, all inputs provided fed into a regional synthesis report which was presented to the Commission during its seventy second session in May 2016.

37 countries have submitted their reports so far. Examples of reports are available here.
