  • How did we get here ? Why are we here ? What to achieve at this HLM? What’s next ?
  • Civil registration important for recognizing and realizing the rights and privileges of individuals Vital statistics important for evidence-based planning and efficiency in resource allocation
  • Genesis of initiative focused on - Challenges in assessing progress towards the MDGs. - Inequalities between population groups and geographic areas. - Lack of sustained high-level political commitment and resources for improving CRVS. - Lack of awareness on the potential benefits of CR and the development of VS. - Inadequate coordination and collaboration among CRVS stakeholders. - Weak institutional capacity. - ICT has yet to be fully realized.   Initially focused on the statistics aspects, the initiative gained momentum when including the challenges and individual and societal benefits of civil registration.
  • The Regional Strategic Plan drafted to respond to challenges and weaknesses identified through country assessments The Regional Plan is the vehicle around which the HLM seeks to raise awareness, confirm challenges and potentials as pointed out by the Committee and Commission. It is also the anchor point for collaboration among development partners and for channelling resources and commitment for effective and well-coordinated improvement of CRVS You have had opportunity to review the RSP and the HLM is the opportunity to verify, adjust, add to the RSP
  • Sessions are aligned with the proposed outcomes of the RSP; the sessions give participants the possibility of commenting [support, suggestions, commitment, … ] on the different parts of the RSP; their interventions will be summarized by the rapporteurs; every session has invited speakers but time for interventions from the floor
