TAGS

In addition to the understanding that civil registration needs to be the basis for legal identity systems, the current COVID-19 crisis also shed light on the need for resilient civil registration systems that can continue operating under stressful situations. As a result, preparations for the Second Ministerial Conference on CRVS in Asia and the Pacific are adapting to reflect a new programme for the Conference.

Some documents' publication and meetings are still expected to occur in the build-up to inform stakeholders and leave space and time for discussions on how to best address remaining challenges to achieving the CRVS Decade goals and targets. however, preparations for the Conference are developing on pace for 16 - 19 November 2021. The content of the different sessions were discussed at previous Regional Steering Group meetings, and both partners and countries are now working to ensure maximal participation by high-level stakeholders at the Conference.

Interested participants can follow the preparations by visiting www.getinthepicture.org, and can now register for the Conference at this address. Visitors to the website can also gain early access to Conference documents such as the Provisional agenda (中文 | English | Français | Русский), the Annotated provisional agenda (中文 | English | Français | Русский) and the ESCAP Resolution calling for the Second Ministerial Conference.
