The Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems, hosted at the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and UNICEF had organized the 3rd CRVS and gender global conference on 17-18 October 2022 in New York at UNFPA headquarters. The aim of the Conference was to engage with key stakeholders on gender and CRVS - including researchers, practitioners, decision makers and policy advocates - in order to ensure that everyone, in particular women and children, is registered, certified and counted by 2030. More specifically, the conference aimed to:

1) Assess developments on CRVS and gender since 2020 Conference in Ottawa, including the impact of Covid-19

2) Highlight the value of CRVS data for tracking gender inequalities at national, regional and global levels

3) Showcase and advance practices to strengthen gender-responsive CRVS systems to advance the 2030 agenda, and in particular SDG 3 and SDG5 and commitments “Leave No One Behind”

4) Identify research/evidence and practice gaps at the intersection of CRVS and gender that require further prioritization now through to 2030.

5) Advance community of practice around gender and CRVS, including nurturing a new generation of CRVS practitioners

Presenters from Georgia, Nepal, Tajikistan, Indonesia, Pakistan, Fiji, and Lao PDR shared experiences during the conference.
