Description and results


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.

Expected results

The immediate expected results of this initiative include: the development of a Global Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) Scaling Up Investment Plan intended to accelerate progress on CRVS, which will identify key challenges and gaps, including financial needs, within select countries and globally. It will feed into a global effort on CRVS.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of the end of project (January 2015) include: The World Bank Group and WHO, in consultation with the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) and several agencies and countries, published the Global CRVS Scaling-Up Investment Plan 2015-2024 in May 2014: The estimated total cost of scaling up and sustaining CRVS systems in the 73 priority countries (excluding China and India) is USD$3.8 billion with an estimated US$2 billion global financing gap over ten years (2015-2024).
