“State of Least Developed Countries 2016.”
The current report builds on the first and second editions, which considered the issues of productive capacity building as well as extreme poverty eradication in the least developed countries (LDCs) and the post-2015 development agenda.

This year’s report is dedicated to the implementation of the SDGs in LDCs using synergies with the IPoA.
“Global Education Monitoring Report 2016.”
The 2016 GEM Report is the first of a new 15-year series. It shows that education will not deliver its full potential to catapult the world forward unless participation rates dramatically improve, learning becomes a lifelong pursuit and education systems fully embrace sustainable development. It provides valuable insight for governments and policy makers to monitor and accelerate progress towards SDG 4, building on the indicators and targets we have, with equity and inclusion as measures of overall success.
“90-90-90 On the right track towards global target.”
The 90–90–90 agenda has in two short years rejuvenated the AIDS response – 90% diagnosed, 90% on treatment, 90% virtually suppressed. Globally, 17 million people were receiving antiretroviral therapy as of December 2015. Bolstering the optimism stemming from continued treatment scale-up, new scientific evidence has further confirmed the urgent need for the treat-all approach on which 90–90–90 is premised. To end the epidemic as a public health threat by 2030, however, the reduction in HIV transmission associated with achievement of 90–90–90 will need to be matched to a much more robust reduction in the risk of HIV.

This compendium is primarily designed to support IOM staff, aiming to facilitate exchange of good practices and promote innovative, high-quality programming while cognizant of the need to assess feasibility and adaptability to local contexts. This process has also contributed to the development of a new IOM framework on the progressive resolution of displacement situations, which conceptualizes IOM’s approach.
