UNICEF to host a webinar on global birth registration progress
TAGS

Based on data from 174 countries, the UNICEF report, Birth Registration for Every Child by 2030: Are we on track? shows that 166 million children under-5, or 1 in 4, remain unregistered today. And even when they are registered, they may not have proof of registration – an estimated 237 million children under age 5 worldwide are currently without a birth certificate.

Moreover, nearly 1 in 3 countries – accounting for around a third of the global population of children under the age of five – will need to urgently speed up progress in order to meet the SDG 16.9 target of providing legal identity for all, including birth registration. This includes many countries in Asia and the Pacific.

On 30 July 2020, from 8:00-9:30 EST (New York), UNICEF is hosting a webinar to provide an opportunity for participants to learn more about the report’s findings and discuss programmatic implications. (Dial-in details can be found below).
