This project will supports the development of a global investment framework for civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS), which is critical to Canadian and global efforts in maternal, newborn, and child health; child protection; education; gender equality; accountability; and other areas. The purpose of this framework is to outline critical gaps and challenges in strengthening CRVS in developing countries, including by identifying potential opportunities and innovations for scale-up, estimating the global financial gap, and outlining options to mobilize partners’ financial contributions. The project will be led by the World Bank.
