We work to promote policy dialogue on various facets of demographic change across the UNECE region, with a particular focus on ageing.

Key areas of work

In focus

The rapid increase in the oldest-old population aged 80 and over brings with it critical challenges for individuals, families, communities and policy makers. The latest Policy Brief on Ageing focuses on innovative social services and supportive measures that help individuals of advanced old age to continue living at home independently.
