The enhancement of CRVS systems is widely recognized as crucial to the calls for inclusive development (i.e. to “leave no one behind”) as part of the 2030 agenda and evidence-based monitoring of population-based targets tied to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This Panel proposes to continue the work of its predecessor – the Panel on Innovations for Strengthening CRVS Systems (2015-2018) – and aims to:
- enhance ongoing efforts to improve CRVS systems by leveraging the technical expertise of the international demography community, and
- facilitate the adaptation and usage of the principles, methods and materials of demography to current efforts to improve civil registration processes and the production of vital statistics from incomplete/deficient civil registration systems.
