UNECE Road Map for Mainstreaming Ageing in Belarus

Population ageing brings with it many economic and societal challenges but also provides opportunities to adapt and capitalize on the potential that longevity embodies. Acknowledging them, the Government of Belarus requested UNECE to support the preparation of a national strategy on ageing by developing a Road Map for Mainstreaming Ageing.

Through the Road Map on ageing, UNECE provides tailored guidance to member States on how to mainstream ageing into all relevant policy fields, implementing the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and its Regional Implementation Strategy for the UNECE region. Recommendations made identify concrete actions relevant to the economic, social, cultural and political specificities of the country.

Road Maps have also been prepared for Armenia, the Republic of Moldova and Georgia: https://www.unece.org/pau/age/capacity/welcome.html.
