Event Details

Newsletter: CRVS Insight April 2022

The "Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Inception Workshop for Assessing Inequalities in Registration" was held on 11 March 2022 in Vientiane, Lao PDR.

Lao PDR has been selected as one of the countries in the region to participate in an ESCAP initiative to support countries in undertaking CRVS inequality assessments. The project seeks to provide technical support and capacity strengthening to the Lao Statistics Bureau and other relevant national stakeholders, in order to facilitate the implementation of CRVS inequality assessments using secondary data sources. This involves building capacity for demographic analysis to undertake inequality assessments in the future, as well as facilitating dialogue with policy-makers to ensure the results are used for policy formulation.

The half-day inception workshop provided an opportunity for relevant CRVS stakeholders (data providers, data users and policy makers) to meet and share experiences of the possible challenges in conducting inequality assessments, and to collaboratively develop a plan for progressing the assessment. 

The key purposes of the half-day inception workshop are:

  1. To provide an overview of the project (e.g. objectives, activities and results to be achieved)
  2. To further develop relationships among relevant stakeholders (data providers, data users, and policy makers)
  3. To learn from each stakeholder on possible challenges, such as data access, data sharing and demographic analysis capacities, and how these challenges can be addressed.
  4. To collaboratively develop a plan for progressing the assessment.
