Important Note: Even though progress on implementation is represented by numerical values, these are not to be used for incisive comparative analyses but rather should be taken as an overall estimation on implementation and where a country may be struggling and/or needs support. Moreover, as it is often difficult to represent qualitative progress in numerical values, it is important to note that some values ascribed are more aptly described as strongly indicative of progress than a perfect numerical demonstration of the same.
