This workshop, largely funded by the USA Embassy in New Zealand with support from the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs, seeks to build relationships between Civil Registrars in New Zealand, Niue, the Cook Islands, Tokelau, Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu, and America Samoa by exploring the use of technology and innovation to strengthen identity security across the region. It will gather, in Auckland, eight national Registrars or Registrars-General of Births, Deaths and Marriages from across Polynesia plus experts from the Pacific Community (SPC), New Zealand, the US Affiliated Pacific Islands Health Officers Association (PIHOA) and the US Centres of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will explore the civil registration systems in each country or territory and how birth and death data could be shared across borders to prevent identity fraud.
