The Global Education Monitoring Report is an annual publication that monitors progress toward global education targets due to be achieved by 2030. Each year, the Report picks a particular theme that is topical and feeds into on-going debates about obstacles, bottlenecks or opportunities to be seized for education.

The GEM Report has many outreach tools which its audiences can sign up to receive or be a part of. These include press releases, a news alert, a regular blog, twitter, facebook, and linkedin.
