Implementation: This ambitious objective is achieved by providing the beneficiaries with
1) harmonized data (micro-aggregated and cross-country comparable) to conduct policy analysis and produce policy recommendations,
2) the necessary training to ensure that the beneficiaries can fully exploit the potential of the micro-based data infrastructure, and
3) finally with a network to share best practices and common goals.
