This brochure provides an overview of UNFPA’s Demographic Resilience Programme, which aims to strengthen the capacity of countries in Europe and Central Asia to respond to the profound demographic shifts the region is experiencing. Many countries in the region are grappling with how to respond to demographic trends like low fertility, population ageing and outmigration and their effects on the economy, social systems and services. With this new programme UNFPA offers a wide range of tools that help address population dynamics in a holistic manner, enabling countries to mitigate negative effects and fully harness the opportunities that come with demographic change.

This project will transform the national statistical system towards a registerbased data and will contribute to the tracking and achievement of several national SDGs. Improving the accuracy and availability of administrative data is a commitment of the Strategy for Development of Statistical System 2020, and recommended by Eurostat, as part of the Adapted Global Assessment of the national system of official statistics of Moldova. As the experience of developed countries shows, that builds their statistical system based on register-based data, an interoperability platform for the exchange of administrative data increases the timeliness, reduce the costs, and provides more accurate and detailed estimates for various sub-population, including vulnerable groups. The statistical population register will be a cornerstone for the preparation of the upcoming Population and Housing Census in the 2020 Global Round and, in long term, will support the National Bureau of Statistics in moving from traditional census to register-based census.
