Disaster Preparation and Response Workshop, 2017

The Pacific Civil Registrars Network is meeting in Suva from the 2-5 October to discuss the role of civil registration and vital statistics systems in planning and responding to natural disasters and other emergencies. CRVS systems provide important information on the population for planning an appropriate response, and play a key role in replacing key identity documents following and event while ensuring the ongoing registration of vital events such as births and deaths especially when populations may be displaced or accessing government services through alternative locations. Registrars will share their experiences and look at national and regional opportunities to improve system resilience and response in the event of a disaster.

Presentations from the workshop are available in the resources / document-library under Pacific_CRVS.
