Descriptif
This programme is one of three components of a comprehensive programme to support the development of the national statistical system for the promotion of governance and monitoring / evaluation of poverty (PASTAGEP) funded by the European Union. It falls within the framework of support for the implementation of the Action Plan of the National Policy of Civil Registry System in Niger. The EU and UNICEF are helping Niger to overhaul its civil registration system by boosting capacity, providing materials and equipment, and promoting public awareness and participation.

Résultats
The proportion of children registered at birth has doubled from 32% in 2006 to 64% in 2013.
Since the adoption of the Civil Registration Act in 2007 the country’s 2 169 civil registry centres have been tripled.
Between 2009 and 2011 over 1.6 million birth certificates were issued to children under the age of 18.

Because of the distance between the nomadic population groups and the administrative centres, the law permits a 30-day declaration period.
Mobile court hearings are organised to register people who have missed the legal deadline for registration, without penalising them.
