The UNDG Chair, Helen Clark, opened the third UNDG meeting of 2016 by extending a special welcome to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) as a new member of the UNDG. The addition of IOM brings UNDG membership to 32 UN entities and sixteen observers. By signing a relationship agreement with the United Nations Secretariat, which became effective on 19 September, IOM has joined the UN common system as a related organization. IOM has become a member of the UN System Chief Executives Board for Co-ordination (CEB), and in turn a member of the UNDG, the Regional UNDG Teams, and UN Country Teams. Issues discussed were Briefing on mid-term status of UNDG work plan, Summary presentation of 2015 UNDG Results Report, Preparations for the 2016 QCPR, Good Practices in South-South and Triangular Cooperation for Sustainable Development, UN Business Operations Strategy (BOS) Guidance, UN Leadership Model, AOB.
