The ultimate success and realization of these outcomes however lies on the creativity of local establishments and actors - local authorities, training institutions, informal sector operators, businesses, and civil society organizations-in adapting the tools to the realities on the ground and using this series as a living document, keeping it enriched through new insights, knowledge and experience.
