We are pleased to announce the launch of our new CRVS Working Paper Series, which documents and shares emerging insights from projects supported by the Centre of Excellence for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Systems.
About the series
The papers represent a snapshot in time of what we are learning across a range of themes and disciplines related to CRVS systems strengthening. Authored by different individuals and organizations, and made available free-of-charge, the papers will be published in at least English and French. Our aim is to make CRVS systems research evidence and knowledge widely accessible for discussion, debate, and use by the global community of practice.
The CRVS Working Paper Series will explore issues, trends, and good practice under the following themes:
- Why CRVS systems matter
- Supporting gender equality
- Overcoming barriers to civil registration
- Leveraging data for inclusive development
- Supporting CRVS system resilience
