Australia (Country Statement Agenda Item 6)

Australia issued this statement in the Ministerial Conference agenda item 6 regarding the State of civil registration and vital statistics in Asia and the Pacific and overview of supporting initiatives (E/ESCAP/MCCRVS/2). Under this agenda item, ministers and heads of delegations were invited to deliver short statements to highlight policy priorities and Challenges for the “CRVS Decade, 2015-2024”, as well as their expectations and goals in regards to the regional collaboration to improve civil registration and vital statistics.
Major challenges Australia is experiencing relate to:

  • The difficulties in aligning jurisdictional legislation to deliver on the common vision for the CRVS system improvement
  • The differences between ICT systems used across the federated system including the different stages of development those systems are at
  • The different levels of resourcing across the system to progress improvements including staffing as well as infrastructure.
