i-Map Profiles

About i-Map country profiles

The i-Map is a support instrument aiming to enhance and facilitate intergovernmental information exchange, and to support the development and implementation of knowledge-based co-operation initiatives.

In line with their geographic/thematic specificities, profiles provide 1) a key source of information on actors, legislation, policies, initiatives, projects, cooperation efforts, data, and main challenges as identified by the respective country; and 2) act as a portal, as all information sources are hyperlinked, thus facilitating access to further reading, supporting the broad dissemination of existing information sources, and significantly decreasing time required to identify key sources.
