The main objective of the Conference of Ministers Responsible for Civil Registration is to provide strategic and policy guidance on pathways towards holistic, innovative and integrated CRVS and digital identity management systems in order to close the identity gap in Africa and thus contribute to the achievement of the target 16.9 of the Sustainable Development Goals. The Fifth Conference will include discussions on new and emerging initiatives: The United Nations Legal Identity Agenda and the digital identity initiative in Africa, both of which rely on a functioning and efficient CRVS system.
