Joint Meeting of the Task Force Monitoring RIS and the Expert Group for the UNECE Conference on Ageing

26 - 27 February 2007

Vienna, Austria





In preparation to the UNECE Conference on Ageing, an Expert Group has been formed to provide policy advice and expert assistance to the intergovernmental Preparatory Committee of the Conference. This Expert Group consists of leading experts on ageing from a broad cross-section of professional, geographic and organisational backgrounds and the members of the Task Force that advises the UNECE secretariat on monitoring the Regional Implementation Strategy (RIS) for the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA).

The main tasks of the Group are to:

  • draft papers on the key areas of MIPAA/RIS;
  • propose topics for the political declaration and agenda items for discussion at the 2007 UNECE Conference on Ageing, for consideration by the Preparatory Committee;
  • provide expert advice on the regional summary report based on the national country reports on the implementation of the Regional Implementation Strategy of the MIPAA.

The first meeting of the Expert Group was held in Vienna, Austria, on 26 and 27 February 2007 jointly with the Task Force for Monitoring RIS. It was hosted by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Social Security, Generations and Consumer Protection.
