It highlights the following themes: (1) countries have engaged in a range of efforts to promote employment, (2) large-scale pilots have helped identify effective programs, (3) most countries have programs to improve access to adult services for people with disabilities, and (4) all countries have actively pursued ways to coordinate youth and adult services.
