The project comprised four phases:
- Inception activities (fine-tuning methodology, quality plan, meetings etc)
- Desk research (literature review, re-analysis of main statistical data sources and studies, workshop)
- Field research (structured interview with national stakeholders, validation of country reviews and sectoral analysis, case studies)
- Integration and recommendations (comparative analyses of country reports and sectoral analysis, in-depth analyses of the case studies, elaboration of recommendations)
