The present strategic planning guide has been compiled to assist countries with the development of a civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) strategic plan and work programme following a comprehensive assessment process.
The guide outlines the processes and steps to be followed, together with supportive templates to be completed in each phase. The strategy development process includes the comprehensive assessment process as a key step in understanding the CRVS environment. It also draws on the prioritization matrix developed by the University of Queensland, Australia.
This guide is supported by a facilitator’s guide that will enable national managers, experts or facilitators to steer the strategy development process.
