CRVS and Natural Disasters
TAGS

Effective CRVS systems play an important role in assisting countries to adequately plan for and respond to disasters, and it is important that CRVS systems are resilient enough to continue functioning in the event of a natural disaster. Pacific countries have had first-hand experience with this recently in responding to cyclones Pam and Winston, and have identified the role of CRVS in disasters as a regional priority. 

For more information on CRVS for disaster planning and response, please see the fact sheet.
