Within the project’s 36 months duration, B&S Europe will provide the National Civil Registration Agency (NCRA) an intensive support in order to update and establish a reliable Integrated National Civil Registration System (INCRS), with regards to the national Civil Registration policy, and to Civil Registration and Vital Statistics (CRVS) African Program principles. This project will also include regular engagements with other key stakeholders such as the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Statistics Sierra Leone, and the Office of the Administrator and Registrar General.

A team of three experts will be dealing with this daily in order for every Sierra Leonean to benefit a from strong and coherent civil registration system for vital events occurring from the cradle to the grave.
