The study is part of a three-year project, which aims to support ECCE policy development cooperation in the selected countries (Uzbekistan, Vietnam, & Fiji) in the Asia-Pacific by developing policy consulting models (1st year), implementing action plans on priority policy tasks (2nd year), and monitoring the implementation processes and outcomes (3rd year). The study, carried out as the 1st year of the project, intended to assess the needs of the selected countries and to devise a consulting model for the ECCE development cooperation through a network among related international organizations and ministries.
