The directory is run by the Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems, a global knowledge hub housed at IDRC with financial support from Global Affairs Canada. It is designed to strengthen the global CRVS network and promote collaboration, learning, and innovation. This will further the Centre of Excellence’s shared mission to protect and empower people through inclusive CRVS systems.

Expertise to support CRVS initiatives

Organizations can use the directory to find and contact vetted experts to support initiatives to strengthen CRVS systems. They can create a profile to post jobs, consultancies, events, calls for proposals, research projects, and more. Users will also receive notifications about relevant CRVS resources, news, and events.

Opportunities for experts

Experts can use the directory to search for rewarding work and learning opportunities. You must meet certain criteria to be approved as an expert, including at least two years of experience in the fields of CRVS or identity management. Registration is open to professionals in a range of disciplines, including:

  • Civil registration
  • Vital statistics
  • Digitization
  • Identity management
  • Law
  • Governance
  • Public health
  • Social mobilization and behaviour change
  • Communication
