The Center of Excellence launches a compendium of good practices on CRVS in crisis situations
TAGS

The Center of Excellence has recently published a compendium of good practices on Harnessing Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) in Conflict, Emergencies and Fragile Settings. It provides successful examples of building or managing CRVS systems in times of crises such as conflicts or natural disasters. These situations put strain on CRVS systems while also making registration more critical for people to access their rights. As such, it is an essential tool to understand how to offer continuity of service or build a new system in those extraordinary situations. The countries featured include New Zealand, South Korea and Vanuatu.
The report will be launched on 14 April (7:30-9:00AM Ottawa time) via a webinar, where experts will reflect on their experiences and delve further on the topic. You can register for the webinar here.
