Ageing

About our work on Ageing

Population ageing is one of the single most important phenomena of our time, bringing wide-ranging challenges and opportunities. UNECE works to implement the United Nations' policy framework on ageing in the region.  Since 2008, the UNECE Working Group on Ageing has provided an intergovernmental platform for these activities.
