TAGS

Newsletter April 2024

In 2022, Lao PDR embarked on conducting a CRVS inequality assessment, through technical and capacity strengthening in demographic skills. The final inequality assessment report was published in 2023 and provides an overview of civil registration completeness in Lao PDR and the drivers behind low birth registration.

Based on key findings from the report, relevant national stakeholders with support from ESCAP and UNFPA came together to identify relevant recommendations and policy implications to generate strategic action areas in a one-day national capacity building workshop in Vientiane on 5 April 2024. The workshop engaged a core group of CRVS and demographic data producers, data users, decision makers and other relevant stakeholders in Lao PDR, with the aim of improving understanding of the ‘Evidence 2 Action (E2A)’ process. The workshop culminated in the identification of selected priority action area(s), their policy implications and the generation of a draft strategic action plan.
