Between 23 - 26 March 2021, the United Nations ESCAP will host the 8th Asia-Pacific Forum for Sustainable Development with the theme of Sustainable and Resilient Recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in Asia and the Pacific. The Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development (APFSD) is an annual and inclusive intergovernmental forum and a regional platform for supporting countries in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. APFSD also serves as a regional preparatory meeting to the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.

Jeff Montgomery from New Zealand, as the Rapporteur for the Regional Steering Group for CRVS in Asia and the Pacific, will be hosting a side event during the APFSD entitled: Invisibility in Covid-19 times, mid-term and mid-crisis: Are we getting everyone in the picture through civil registration?

The side event will be held on 25 March 2021 from 12:15 - 13:45 (Bangkok time) and will address key concerns regarding the region's progress on civil registration, including; civil registration as the foundation for legal identity, integrating civil registration with ID systems, and civil registration and vital statistics as an accelerator for SDG achievements. More information, including how to register can be found here.
