What is a pathfinder country?

Pathfinder countries have considerable potential to amplify investments in jobs and social protection and have expressed a commitment to do so. The Global Accelerator’s Implementation Strategy will be developed through a process of co-creation with governments, social partners, UN agencies, IFIs, and other key stakeholders to build a tailor-made approach adapted to each country’s specific context and circumstances, including those in fragile and post-conflict settings. 

Countries aiming to officially become part of the Global Accelerator must secure political support at the highest level, establish a cross-ministerial coordination mechanism, and start the design and development of the national implementation roadmap. The national roadmaps will set the direction and define the entry points for the implementation of the Global Accelerator in the country.
