Good Governance and Civil Society
Cameroon began modernising its civil registration and vital statistics system in 2009, and from 2011 as part of the “Programme for the Rehabilitation of the Civil Registration System”. The subordinate National Civil Registration Authority, established in 2015, is to support the implementation of the national reform. But the standards recommended by the United Nations for civil registration systems, namely the continuous, mandatory, permanent and universal collection of vital events, have not been met. The statistical function of the civil registration system has also not yet been achieved. The module target is: the Ministry of Dezentralisation and Local Development, the National Civil Registration Authority and selected municipalities are in the position to ensure the implementation of an inclusive and accountable system of civil registration and vital statistics.
The project focuses on three areas of activity:
