Pacific Civil Registrars Network

The PCRN is an independent network of Civil Registrars in the Pacific, established in 2014 for sharing knowledge, lessons learned and good practice in Civil Registration among practitioners. The network seeks to foster peer-peer relationships and support in tackling common challenges affecting the implementation of CRVS systems in the region, towards implementation of the Pacific Vital statistics Action Plan (PVSAP) and the Asia-Pacific Regional Action Framework on CRVS.

WHAT WE DO: We provide an opportunity to share information, lessons learned and good practice. This fosters coordination and integration of Civil Registrars’ input and ideas into the implementation of the PVSAP and the Asia Pacific Regional Action Framework for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics. We are supported by the Brisbane Accord Group. Secretariat support is provided by New Zealand.

WHO WE ARE: Membership is open to any Civil Registrar with State or Country level responsible for civil registration or vital statistics, or their nominee. Associate membership has also been extended to relevant partner agencies and businesses. We have members from 36 countries or states, 21 agencies and 12 businesses.

OUR VISION: By 2024, the Civil Registrars across the Pacific will work together in ways that are flexible to local needs, with a shared approach to legislative change, enabling technology and data exchange.
