  7. 7. Making the Invisible Visible: CRVS as a basis to meeting the 2030 Gender agenda • We convened statisticians, researchers, gender experts etc. to discuss a critical subject for the 2030 Agenda – Gender and CRVS. • We recognized the critical role CRVS plays in the SDGs, in the lives of women and girls, and within human right and legal frameworks. • We heard commitments and action plans from national governments, UN and international agencies, and civil society organizations. • We reviewed challenges and opportunities to make progress on CRVS and gender.
  8. 8. Summary of Key Messages • Prioritization: The importance of CRVS has been recognized but it needs to be prioritized under national development plans, statistical plans, and global agendas (Cape Town Global Action Plan, High Level Political Forum, HLG-PCCB, etc.) • Funding and finances: There is a need to strengthen and better communicate the economic, political social value for CRVS, leverage current initiatives and ongoing efforts, and find low- hanging fruits. • Partnership and collaboration: Strong CRVS systems require participation from all parts of government (Civil registry; health ministries; ministries of justice; statistical office) as well as private sector. • Knowledge and research: More knowledge is needed on what works, why it works, and how it works in regard to incentivizing registration and understanding the barriers women face. • Balance: There is a need to strike a balance between investing in ID systems and CRVS system as well as a balance between birth, marriage/divorce, and death.
  9. 9. Moving the CRVS-Gender Agenda Forward Ensure the results of the CRVS-Gender meetings are brought to the global agenda. Continue to offer opportunities for discussions and convene stakeholders to shape the future of the agenda. Share an outcome document from today’s meeting highlighting main discussion points, findings and recommendations.
