TAGS

(Newsletter May 2023)

The regional workshop for the Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Inequality Assessment project in Asia and the Pacific was organized on 8-9 May 2023 in Bangkok. The workshop provided an opportunity for countries which undertook an inequality assessment to share experiences and lessons learned, and to document best practices for other countries which may be interested in undertaking an inequality assessment in the future. The workshop included 21 participants from 12 country participants (Lao PDR, Pakistan, Philippines, Samoa, Fiji and Bangladesh) and 10 development partner participants (UNHCR, WHO, Bali Process, Vital Strategies and ESCAP). The presentation material will be made available on https://getinthepicture.org/
