Knowledge Briefs on Gender and CRVS

The Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems launched a knowledge brief series that aims to uncover gender bias and barriers, share case studies and emerging findings, and recommend priority areas and solutions. This series provides crucial support to CRVS stakeholders – helping inspire action and promote adoption of good practices. It builds on the outcomes of an event held in early 2018 (Making the Invisible Visible: CRVS as a Basis to Meeting the 2030 Gender Agenda) and a side event at the United Nations World Data Forum in October 2018 (Civil Registration as a Tool for Women’s Empowerment).

Three briefs (each containing four papers) were released in 2019 and 2020. The full collection can be found online at
