The Regional Workshop is being held as part of a project to strengthen capacity to implement inequality assessments of civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems, which has been initiated by ESCAP and includes both in-country and regional level capacity strengthening activities. One element of this project relates to training on demographic skills to enable countries to implement the inequality assessments.
The Regional Workshop aimed to provide technical guidance and enhance expertise on demographic methods with a focus on measuring completeness of the civil registration of births and deaths. The training divided into 6.5 hours of instruction and 6 hours of practical and hands-on exercises. It run for 2.5-3 hours a day over five days from 28 March to 1 April 2022.
