An initial meeting of the SEA registrars will be organized with support of the Philippines Statistics Authority on 7-9 February 2023 in Manila and will be part of the CRVS month in the Philippines.

The Pacific Civil Registrars Network (PCRN) was created in 2014. Our vision is that by 2024 the Civil Registrars across the Pacific will work together in ways that are flexible to local needs, with a shared approach to legislative change, enabling technology and data exchange. We provide an opportunity to share information, lessons learned and good practice. This fosters coordination and integration of Civil Registrars’ input and ideas into the implementation of the Pacific Vital Statistics Action Plan and Asia-Pacific Regional Action Framework for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics.
This workshop is organized subsequent to the Civil Registration Vital Statistics (CRVS) Second National Capacity Building Workshop for Assessing Inequalities in Registration, organized during 25-28 October 2022, Hybrid and in Vangvieng, Lao PDR.
