Launch of Getting Every One in the Picture - a snapshot of progress midway through the Asian and Pacific Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Decade

Event Details

The region has reached the midpoint of the Asian and Pacific Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Decade (2015-2024). The Decade is dedicated to achieving universal and responsive CRVS systems. CRVS systems provide individuals with a legal identity, facilitating access to public services, while supporting governments by producing better data to guide decision making. The COVID-19 crisis has further put a spotlight on the importance of CRVS systems by revealing the stark inequalities and fragility of our health care and social protection systems. The lack of well-functioning CRVS systems means we will never know the full impact of the pandemic in terms of the number of deaths and those affected by the crisis, never mind our ability to provide timely social and economic support.

To take stock of the progresses made during the first half of the Decade and better understand the challenges, ESCAP just published a report titled "Getting every one in the picture - A snapshot of progress midway through the Asia and Pacific Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Decade". The report shows that the Asia-Pacific region is on the right path to reach goals of universal and responsive CRVS systems. CRVS systems are much better positioned to respond to the crisis than they would have been five years ago.

This report will be launched, at the regional level, by Ms. Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and Executive Secretary of ESCAP. The launch will also feature opening remarks by Ms. Kamni Naidu, Administrator-General, Ministry of Justice, Fiji as the Chair of Regional Steering Group for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics, presentations on report findings and sharing experiences on country progress from Bangladesh and Georgia.

The regional launch will be followed by 4 subregional launches, which narrows in on the particular challenges faced in each sub-region (the Pacific, South and South West Asia, South East Asia, and North and Central Asia) as per date and time in the schedule below.

The report is prepared as part of the analysis to inform the organization of the Second Ministerial Conference on CRVS in Asia and the Pacific, 16-19 November 2021.
