34. The Committee urges the State party to strengthen and further develop its national system of registration to ensure that all children born within the national territory are registered, paying particular attention to the most disadvantaged children including Bororo, Baka, Bakola and Mafa children, girls, children living in rural areas, and refugee children. Furthermore, in order to implement effective birth registration, the Committee recommends that the State party:

(a) Create institutional structures with adequate human, technical and financial resources at all levels that allow compulsory, accessible and free birth registration especially in rural and remote areas and refugee camps;

(b) Extend the time period during which obtaining birth registration is free from 30 to 120 days and establish easily accessible registration centres and mobile units for remote and rural areas, giving priority and resources to placing centres in underserved regions which have low rates of birth registration;

(c) Seek technical assistance, inter alia from UNICEF, for the implementation of these recommendations.
