The past 50 years of demographic change in Asia and the Pacific is without historic parallel, altering the region’s demographic landscape forever. What makes the change so striking is the rapid and unparalleled pace at which it has occurred. The change has been accompanied by significant developments in the economic, social, cultural and political fabric of the countries in the region.
