The quest of the last 15 years to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) taught us that Global Goals can motivate and help sustain leaps in human progress. It also taught us that the specifics matter. In some places, the MDGs became a widely-recognized, consistent and important driver of local progress; in others, the role and impact of the MDGs was more ambiguous. A lot depended on way the MDGs were implemented: if local change agents made them meaningful locally; if local leaders drew on their legitimacy and visibility; if they were employed to solve real-life problems etc.

Afghanistan. Not only is it bedevilled by almost incessant armed violence, it's also subject to boiling summers. harsh winters and flash floods which can wipe out years of hard-won development in seconds. When homes are under threat, when making a living is impossible, people migrate. IOM is building walls all over Afghanistan - not to keep people out, but to hold back the floods and allow people to stay where they want to be - at home.
