CRVS stakeholders, structures and coordination

CRVS stakeholders, structures and coordination

In CRVS and governance we introduced strategies to address barriers to the effective functioning of CRVS systems. In the four modules covered under this topic, we describe standards and tools that can contribute to improved CRVS governance and architecture. By governance, we mean: 'the managerial processes of interaction and decision-making among the actors involved in the collective challenge that lead to the creation, reinforcement, or reproduction of norms and institutions.'1 More pragmatically, governance can be defined as: 'the combination of political, social, economic and institutional factors that affect the behaviour of organisations and individuals and influence their performance.'2

In this section you will learn about:

  • CRVS stakeholders 
  • Roles and responsibilities of different entities within CRVS
  • CRVS governance structures
  • Where CRVS systems fit in the broader administrative ecology
