“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.
“IOM Contributions to Progressively Resolve Displacement Situations: Compendium of activities and good practice.”
Compendium reports are central to IOM’s own processes of collecting and learning from good practices globally. Externally, they demonstrate IOM’s experience on a given topic. 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.
“UNHCR Refugee Emergency Response in Europe SA.”
Throughout 2015, increasing numbers of people risked their lives to cross the Mediterranean Sea in search of safety and protection in Europe.

“Child Poverty in Tanzania.”
This report presents the first national estimates of child monetary and deprivation poverty in Tanzania. A multidimensional child poverty indicator (MCPI) has been developed using UNICEF’s Multiple Overlapping Deprivation Analysis (MODA) methodology applied to the Tanzanian context and using the National Panel Survey (NPS) datasets. The resulting national measure of multidimensional poverty, along with an estimate of child monetary poverty are both defined and explained in order to build a comprehensive understanding of the extent of child well-being in Tanzania.
“Beyond detention – Progress Report mid-2016.”
A Global Strategy to support governments to end the detention of asylum-seekers and refugees – 2014-2019 This initial Progress Report reviews the first two years of the Global Strategy’s implementation and presents the progress achieved. Promoting alternatives to detention through technical support and advice to ensure that detention is only resorted to in exceptional circumstances for a legitimate purpose, and based on an assessment of the individual’s particular circumstances, has been a central aim of all the protection activities in the 12 countries engaged in the Strategy.
“Beyond Detention – Baseline Report – Detention situation as of end 2013.”
A Global Strategy to support governments to end the detention of asylum-seekers and refugees – 2014-2019 In June 2014, UNHCR launched its Global Strategy – Beyond Detention 2014-2019, which aims to support governments to end the detention of asylum-seekers and refugees. The Strategy lays out three main goals: (1) to end the detention of children; (2) to ensure that alternatives to detention (ATDs) are available in law and implemented in practice; and (3) to ensure that conditions of detention, where detention is necessary and unavoidable, meet international standards by, inter alia, securing access to places of immigration detention for UNHCR and/or its partners and carrying out regular monitoring.
“High and Dry: Climate Change, Water, and the Economy.”
The impacts of climate change will be channeled primarily through the water cycle, with consequences that could be large and uneven across the globe. Water-related climate risks cascade through food, energy, urban, and environmental systems. Growing populations, rising incomes, and expanding cities will converge upon a world where the demand for water rises exponentially, while supply becomes more erratic and uncertain. They will jeopardize growth prospects in the regions worst affected and in some of the poorest countries. These challenges are not insurmountable, however, and smart policies that induce water-use efficiency, align incentives across regional and trading partners, and invest in adaptive technologies can go a long way toward reducing or eliminating these negative effects.

“Phased agricultural livelihood needs assessment framework and tools.”
Needs assessments are a fundamental component of the humanitarian program cycle. There is, therefore, a need for a clear needs assessment approach, guidelines and tools to build and ensure adequate capacity of FAO decentralized offices. The main purpose of these Guidelines is to establish a standardized corporate needs assessment framework and toolbox that aligns with the five pre- and post-crisis needs assessment phases. It provides minimum common standard assessment indicators and survey methodologies for agricultural and rural livelihood needs assessments following natural or man-made shocks.
