These programs will be multi-lateral, joining the work of civil societies, governments, UN agencies, and donors. The countries chosen as pilots for the project include Burkina Faso, Chile, Fiji, Jamaica, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Paraguay, Philippines, Rwanda, and Yemen. Programs are expected to be established in these countries by 2010.
