Report of the Fifth Conference of Ministers Responsible for Civil Registration. The theme of the Conference was “Innovative civil registration and vital statistics systems: foundation for legal identity management”. The main objective of the Conference was to discuss potential holistic and integrated approaches that could be adopted to strengthen civil registration and vital statistics systems and national identification management mechanisms with a view to closing the identity gap in Africa and accelerating efforts to achieve target 16.9 of the Sustainable Development Goals. To realize that objective, it is critical that the member States are represented at the highest level of policymaking and programme implementation.
