Head of UNPOG, Mr. Chae Gun Chung, participated and delivered opening remarks in the High-Level Launch of the State-of-the-Art Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) eLearning Course on 22 May 2017 in Seoul, Republic of Korea.
The event was jointly organized by the Ministry of Strategy and Finance, Korea Development Institute School of Public Policy and Management (KDI School) and the Ewha Womans University, in collaboration with the World Bank Group, to bring together high level experts and government officials to share and discuss the key prevailing issues in building system for CRVS and National Identity Management Systems as well as the launch of the CRVS eLearning course.
The CRVS eLearning course has been a collaborative effort of the World Bank Group, Korea institutions, Global CRVS Group and the Open Learning Campus. The launch marks a major milestone considering that there is currently no comprehensive course for CRVS training.
CRVS is one of the most important fundamental functions that needs to be in place in the process of SDGs implementation and UNPOG is planning to conduct a number of activities on this issue, since UNPOG currently focuses on building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions for advancing the implementation of the SDGs.
