ESCAP is organizing a virtual 2020 Asia-Pacific Statistics Week between 15-19 June. Everyone interested in statistics is welcome to participate.

With the theme, “A decade of action for the 2030 Agenda: Statistics that leave no one and nowhere behind”, the Statistics Week will focus on progress toward a Collective Vision and Framework for Action endorsed by the ESCAP Statistics Committee.

CRVS-related themes will play an important role in the Statistics Week's agenda by highlighting developments made in systems around the region. The papers presented will focus on topics such as Measuring Maternal Mortality using Civil Registration Data in the Philippines, Birth registration inequalities: a case study of Pakistan, Maximizing completeness of data and instilling trust in birth registration in Afghanistan, and an In‐depth review and needs assessment of CRVS System to develop an action plan for overall improvement of the system in Pakistan.
