Following on from yesterday’s inspiring and enlightening event looking at CRVS within the context of achieving the 2030 Gender Agenda, today sees the launch of the CRVS innovations conference.
With some of the key influencers and actors in the field of CRVS systems development and implementation, today promises opportunities for valuable learning and development of key ideas around the future of CRVS.
The day begins with a welcome address on the global significance of CRVS from Christopher MacLennan, Assistant Deputy Minister of Global Affairs Canada (GAC), and Jean Lebel, President of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC).
Panel sessions will run concurrently across the morning and afternoon. These sessions are designed to enable participants to engage with key elements within the broader agenda in a more concentrated way. Core subjects under discussion today include:
- Inclusive Development

- Social protection in the context of Inclusive development
- The role of unique Identification systems
- Legal Framework and Protection of Identities
- Health in the context of inclusive development
- Contemporary examples in improving CRVS systems

Emerging themes and key outcomes from these discussions will be captured and shared in the post conference report. Outcomes of the conference will also be presented at the 49th session of the United Nations Statistical Commission taking place from 6-9 March 2018 in New York.
