ESCWA, the Arab Institute for Training and Research in Statistics and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), are organizing a regional workshop on the “strategic framework for improving civil registration and vital statistics systems (CRVS) in the Arab region 2021-2025: progress made and way forward”.

The workshop comes two years after ESCWA, WHO, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNRWA, UNICEF, the Norwegian Refugee Council, and the International Development and Research Centre of Canada developed the regional strategic framework to enhance CRVS in the Arab region for the period 2021-2025. The framework, adopted as a guiding document for developing a national action plan at a regional workshop held in July 2021, aims to improve and update civil registration systems in line with CRVS priorities in each country.

The purpose of the workshop is to carry out an inclusive mid-term review of progress made in the implementation of the strategic framework by countries and related organizations and to identify experiences that can be leveraged to accelerate the realization of its objectives in the coming two years at both regional and national levels.
