(Newsletter July 2023)

Directors and officers from the Nepali Civil Registrar and National Statistical Office travelled to Bangkok to participate in a weeklong training workshop organized by the Statistics Division of ESCAP, in collaboration with UNFPA Nepal and UNICEF Nepal.

The training was focused on the production of vital statistics and on the improvement of demographic skills. The Nepali delegation also visited Chulalongkorn University's College of Population Studies and the Bureau of Registration Administration (BORA) of Thailand. They also had the opportunity to observe operations at a local registration office. 

This experience aimed to strengthen the Nepal's capacity to regularly produce and report vital statistics using civil registration records and prepare for their upcoming first vital statistics reports and future inequality assessment of the CRVS system. It also facilitated experience and best practice sharing between Thai and Nepali Civil Registration authorities.
