27. The Committee urges the State party to:

(a) Use the qualitative and quantitative analysis on statelessness in the State party undertaken by the Census Bureau and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in 2018 to review policies and strategies with relevance for the rights of stateless children and establish a data collection system on stateless children, disaggregated by, inter alia, sex, age, national and ethnic origin, and minority and socioeconomic status;

(b) Amend Act No. 61-415 to automatically grant nationality at birth also to children who cannot acquire the nationality of their parents or who are abandoned on the State party’s territory;

(c) Expeditiously amend Act No. 61-415 to remove any limitations to the right of women to pass on their nationality to their children. 

25. The Committee urges the State party to:
(a) Strengthen measures to promote mandatory, universal and timely birth registration, and eliminate any fees and costs associated with registration;

(b) Expeditiously implement Act No. 2018-862 of 19 November 2018 on civil status and Act No. 2018-863 of 19 November 2018 on birth registration, with the aim of decentralizing birth registration as far as possible, to benefit rural and marginalized populations and to facilitate registration of those children who do not yet possess a birth certificate;

(c) Ensure that such measures are applicable to children whose parents fled the State party in the context of its military and political crises, including the post- election crisis of 2010/11, and who were born outside of the State party and are thus not yet registered.
