25. The Committee reiterates its previous recommendation (CRC/C/15/Add.89, para. 35) to launch awareness-raising programmes, regarding the parents’ duty to register newborn children. In so doing, the Committee furthermore recommends that the State party:
(a) Take all the necessary measures to ensure that registration fees, including fees for late registration, are permanently abolished;
(b) Place particular focus on groups of children whose birth registration remains a serious concern, including continuing to develop measures to increase birth registration in remote areas, and among children from minority groups.
27. The Committee recommends that the State party take all the necessary measures to avoid a child found abandoned in Fiji being stateless. Furthermore, the Committee recommends that the State party consider ratifying the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness of 1961.
