TAGS

 A multi sectoral team of CRVS stakeholders in Vanuatu participated in the inception workshop for conducting an assessment, analysis and redesign of CRVS processes, held on the 16th February. During the workshop, stakeholders were introduced to the concepts and methodologies underlying the CRVS Systems Improvement Framework and discussed the activities involved in the project.  

The project aims to support the Government of Vanuatu to strengthen its CRVS system by analyzing the birth and death registration processes to identify key performance issues and bottlenecks, which will inform redesign ideas and improvement policies. Through a series of one-on-one consultations and whole-group consultations, the activities under this project adopt a participatory approach to engage stakeholders in mapping current CRVS processes to improve understanding of the system and its weaknesses, and identify solutions and monitor change. Implementation of this project is also being supported by the UNDP Vanuatu Country Office who have been supporting Vanuatu to establish its new central civil register as one of the first countries in the Pacific to establish legal identity and national ID cards for all citizens.
