(Newsletter: CRVS Insight September 2022)

A multi-stakeholder group of participants from Lao Statistics Bureau and other ministries relevant to CRVS, convened for the first national capacity building workshop for assessing inequalities in civil registration in Vang Vieng, Lao PDR from 17 to 19 August 2022.  The hands-on workshop which was organized in collaboration between UNESCAP and Lao Statistics Bureau (LSB), took place over three days and focused on methods for estimating civil registration completeness and the compilation of life tables using national data from Lao PDR. The event was organized as part of the UNESCAP project to support countries in undertaking CRVS inequality assessments by providing technical support and facilitating dialogue with policy-makers to ensure the results of assessments are used for policy formulation.  The workshop highlighted the importance of complete civil registration data for inclusive mortality analysis which leaves no one behind and provided the foundations for the next national capacity building workshop planned in Lao PDR.
