Legal review of CRVS in Pacific countries
TAGS

The Pacific Island nations are preparing to review their CRVS laws and make recommendations for improving their national CRVS legal frameworks. With support from the Brisbane Accord Group, and in particular The Pacific Community, four countries in particular are undertaking this important work to gain support from their respective cabinets for improving and strengthening the frameworks currently governing their civil registration systems: Kiribati, Tuvalu, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.

As an example of these reviews in action, a white paper from the Solomon Islands can be found on www.getinthepicture.org while an overview of all legislation in the Pacific Islands can found here.
