Executive summary

This report updates prior World Population Ageing editions. The series originated as part of the United Nations activities connected to the Second World Assembly on Ageing in April 2002, where the Political Declaration and the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA) were adopted. MIPAA represented a milestone in addressing the challenge of building a society for all ages. The Plan focuses on three priority areas: older persons and development; advancing health and well-being into old age; and ensuring enabling and supportive environments. MIPAA links population ageing and the wellbeing of older persons to international frameworks for social and economic development and human rights, particularly those agreed to at the United Nations conferences and summits of the 1990s.
