During UNDP's tenure, they will be tasked with promoting CRVS improvement agendas globally, while maintaining adherence to the Group's central promise to strengthen national CRVS and related systems through coordination and collaboration on global and regional initiatives and exchange of information. Members congratulated and thanked the outgoing Chair, Gloria Mathenge from the Secretariat for the Pacific Community, for all her hard work overseeing activities during the 2020-2021 period. Gloria very successfully managed to highlight the needs of CRVS systems in the Pacific to the global community.
