We need a convention on the rights of older people
Existing human rights mechanisms fail to adequately protect and promote the rights of older people. We believe that a single instrument, a new international convention on the rights of older people, is the most effective way to make sure that all people enjoy their human rights in older age, and on an equal basis with others.

The care economy has enormous potential for employment generation in the coming years. Changing demographics and gender roles mean that finding solutions to care work is essential if women are to truly have equal opportunities in the world of work. As such, promoting decent care jobs has become an important area for ILO work. Care work needs to be measured, recognized, and valued.

The research presented in this report highlights a complex and rapidly changing set of dynamics in global terrorism. While on the one hand the top-line statistics highlight an improvement in the levels of global terrorism, the continued intensification of terrorism in some countries is a cause for serious concern, and highlights the fluid nature of modern terrorist activity. The complexity of this year’s GTI is underscored by the fact that although 76 countries improved their GTI scores compared to 53 countries that worsened, the overall global GTI score deteriorated by six per cent since last year as many moderately affected countries experienced record levels of terrorism.

Recent events in Africa and the Middle East have led to a dramatic increase in migration to the WHO European Region. The International Organization for Migration reports that nearly 380 000 people have arrived in Europe and over 4700 have been found dead or reported missing at sea in 2016 alone. Today, 75 million migrants are estimated to be living in the Region, accounting for nearly 8.4% of the total population.

Copenhagen, Denmark, 15 December 2016
Over one million refugees and migrants arrived in Europe by sea in 2015. 2016 has become the deadliest year ever for these travellers, with over 4700 people found dead or missing at sea so far. Sudden and large influxes of refugees and migrants can disrupt entire health systems in countries of transit and destination, if these are not adequately prepared. While the health problems of refugees and migrants are similar to those of the rest of the population, many suffer from physical and psychological illnesses associated with exposure to conflicts and violence at departure, as well as from the consequences of the journey and the living conditions on arrival.
The WHO Regional Office for Europe has developed a toolkit – the first of its kind – to help countries analyse and improve their health capacity and first response to large-scale migration.

15 December 2016 – Even as the international community pledged to ‘leave no one behind’ with the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has warned that without stronger global support, 48 of the world’s most vulnerable countries will lose ground in economic development and face increasing levels of poverty.
