Country Assessment Report
NCRA Holds Regional Validation Workshop from 27th - 31st May 2019

In its drive to showcase an efficient and quality service delivery mechanism, the National Civil Registration Authority (NCRA), undertook a five-day regional validation workshop to assess and modify a nationwide CRVS field assessment report in Sierra Leone. The aim of the validation session was to review for modification and adopt findings of earlier nationwide country assessment exercise done in April 2019.

The validation exercise which started on 27th May 2019 at the Kenema District Council Hall, attracted key CRVS stakeholders across the socio-economic and political spectrum of the eastern region. In his opening remarks at the ceremony, the astute and result oriented Director-General of the NCRA, Mr. Mohamed Mubashir Massaquoi appreciated the commitment demonstrated by the participants for having travelled from far and wide to provide national support to the Institution. He informed the gathering that at the heart of the CRVS assessment report for validation, were to identify key gaps, challenges and proffer realistic recommendations to enhance a better and sustained CRVS landscape in Sierra Leone. The Director-General stressed among others that CRVS provides women and children the opportunity to have increased access to quality service delivery including but not limited to health, education etc.

The National Consultant Grace Herman, presented the initial CRVS field findings to the stakeholders after which responses were made to issues that needed further clarifications and novel ideas on matters of grave importance incorporated. After her presentation, the participants were put into discussion groups in order to discuss and bring out the missing links in the document and proffer suggestions and recommendations to enrich the document.

The formal presentation and discussion of the validation document was the same everywhere across the regions. However, varying but interesting ideas were brought up according to the culture and traditions of the participants.
