Organized by the Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems, UNICEF and WHO, and themed: Harnessing the Power: CRVS Systems for 2030 Global Agendas, the conference convened over 140 experts and practitioners from UN agencies, academia, civil society organizations, the private sector and low and middle income countries for panel sessions, discussions and innovation labs.

Rather than just focusing narrowly on technological innovations, this conference highlighted the importance of system-wide methodological innovations to complement and support technological advancement. Innovative ways of linking CRVS to social protection and ID systems, new human-centred design approaches to increase demand and use of services, and innovative methods of registering vital events in conflict and emergency settings are critical if we are to achieve the SDGs by 2030. 

The outcome report is available in both French and English.
