In this series of articles, the role of universal civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems is examined as an essential tool for good governance and inclusive development. Fully functional CRVS systems generate valuable data and contribute to strengthened administrative systems and improved service delivery. Ultimately, CRVS systems furnish the administrative backbone for sustainable and inclusive development and are fundamental to the realization of human rights and the efficient provision of social protection.
