Support programme for strengthening the civil registration system in Niger

Support programme for strengthening the civil registration system in Niger

Since 2012, the European Union and Unicef ​​have joined forces to support the Government of Niger in strengthening its civil registration system: every birth, regardless of the place of residence and the social situation of the parents, must be declared and every child should have a birth certificate.

To consolidate the achievements and to modernise the birth registration system in Niger, the EU has reiterated its financial commitment and extended its partnership with UNICEF in favor of the civil status of Niger by providing more support for the period 2017-2020 through the financing of a Support Programme for the Reform of Civil Status (PAREC).
