How are CRVS systems responding to the COVID-19 crisis?
TAGS

As referenced in our April edition of CRVS Insight, the UN Statistics Division developed a short survey for National CRVS focal points to assess the impact of the global pandemic on the functioning of civil registration worldwide, as well as provide information regarding national solutions. In Asia and the Pacific, the questionnaire was distributed by ESCAP to National CRVS Focal Points.

The survey results can be found on the UN Legal Identity Agenda website, along with guidance on maintaining operational continuity during this ongoing crisis.
