ESCAP Asia-Pacific Stats Café Series - Estimating completeness of vital events: Launch of the Guidelines

Kind of event
Joint Partner

As part of the proclamation of the Asia and Pacific Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Decade (2015-2024), governments in the region requested that further regional action be taken to support the improvement of CRVS systems. The regional action framework responds to that request as a catalyst for governments and development partners to focus and accelerate their efforts to realize a shared vision and the three CRVS goals outlined in the framework during the Decade. The mid-term review, and accompanying technical report, of progress made by countries in the Asia-Pacific region since the beginning of the Decade was able to demonstrate significant achievements in many countries in the region, yet with identified shortcomings in countries’ ability to evaluate the completeness of their civil registration systems, as well as capability and capacity gaps in this sphere.
