The objective of the Expert Group Meeting (EGM) is to serve as a formal peer review of the training-of-trainers manual drafted by ESCAP and ECA to support the production of vital statistics from civil registration records. During the EGM, inputs and feedback on the content and structure of the manual will be collected from the participants and the strategy for testing the manual and subsequent application by countries for capacity building will be developed. The Expert Group will also review and validate a template and guidelines for the development of Vital Statistics Report produced by Statistics Norway in collaboration with both the regional commissions.
