The Regional Action Framework responds to a request for regional action in support of improving national CRVS systems and acts as a catalyst for Governments and development partners to focus efforts on meeting specific goals and targets. The RAF contains three goals, fifteen nationally-set targets, seven action areas and eight implementation steps for countries to follow while improving their CRVS systems.

Building off the baseline questionnaire, the midterm questionnaire assesses country progress in meeting their self-selected targets under the RAF goals. However, the midterm questionnaire not only measures country progress in reaching the goals and targets, but will also form the basis for a midterm, regional assessment report. In turn, the regional assessment report will serve as the basis for discussion at the 2020 Ministerial Conference on CRVS in Asia and the Pacific.
