The improvement of civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) system in the Pacific requires a diverse set of technical expertise that is not available in any one agency. Recognising this, the Pacific Community - SPC leads a partnership of development agencies known as the Brisbane Accord Group (BAG).
The new Action Plan for Pacific Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (APPCRVS) provides the mechanism by which the BAG coordinate, plan and manage the implementation of technical activities at national and regional level. The objective is to provide decision-makers with the evidence needed for effective planning; to support universal registration recognising the importance of a legal identity in the provision and protection of human rights and good governance; and to better coordinate strategic and technical efforts amongst partners.
The APPCRVS is driven by country needs and issues as articulated through the Strategic Framework for the Development of Pacific Statistics 2022-2030 and input from the member countries of the Pacific Community through their national CRVS committees and plans, other BAG partners and direct representation through Pacific Health Information Network (PHIN) and Pacific Civil Registrars Network (PCRN).
