What can be done to rapidly improve CRVS systems?

Overcoming policy and institutional challenges

Overcoming policy and institutional barriers to well-functioning CRVS systems requires action on multiple fronts. This includes advocating for CRVS within government and the administration at national and local levels. A well-functioning CRVS system contributes to a culture of data-informed decision-making, enhanced statistical literacy and improved analytical capacities. Important actions to address policy and institutional challenges include:

  • High-level political commitment to create the conditions for trusted and responsive civil registration and for the generation and use of vital statistics, including allocation of resources. 
  • Coordination of multiple sectors at different levels, with delineation of clear roles and responsibilities for civil registration and for vital statistics.
  • Sound administrative structures and processes to guide day-to-day operations and foster innovations, including for statistical capacity development and IT.
  • Supportive legislation and regulations, encapsulated in an up-to-date civil registration framework and modernised statistical and information technology laws.
