Abstract

After an overview of the importance of the PIM/IMT programs and some brief background information on their implementation in the focus countries, the chapter orients towards problem identification and solving. For this purpose, it highlights the main issues that characterize the implementation process of these programs. Within each issue, the solving approach adopted by different countries is analyzed. Problems and solutions are sometimes quite diverse because the purposes of these programs are also different in the respective countries. Nevertheless, learning lessons are retained and overall conclusions drawn.
