TAGS

The Solomon Islands adopted a new Civil Registration database software system in December of 2013. Mr. Musu Kevu, Civil Registrar of Births and Deaths, explained that “All Solomon Islanders will now be better able to formally register themselves as legal citizens, easily trace their identities, access relevant services and for the government the database will greatly enhance the development of their social and economic policies and decision making.” The project received financial and technical support from UNICEF, as well as technical support from the Brisbane Accord Group, SPC, WHO, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the University of Queensland.
