Colour rating system initiates action, and does not undermine it!
The initiative does not intend to undermine the efforts made by the countries, rather it aims at stimulating action on critical areas to support effective implementation of the Global Strategy. We believe that, when individuals or nations look closely at their own data, it is likely to stimulate corrective measures among them.
