#MIPAA20

Population ageing is a megatrend in Asia and the Pacific, and it is rapidly increasing. In 2020, sixty per cent of the world’s older persons resided in the region, or some 630 million persons 60 years or over. By 2050, it is projected that one quarter of the population of Asia and the Pacific will be older, some 1.3 billion people. Population ageing presents challenges and opportunities to older persons and affects all aspects of the societies in which they live. It is an important multidimensional reality of major relevance for sustainable development.

In this context, the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) is organizing the “Asia-Pacific Intergovernmental Meeting on the Fourth Review and Appraisal of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing”, pursuant to General Assembly resolutions 75/125 and 76/138 and Economic and Social Council resolution 2020/8.  The meeting will be held from 29 June to 1 July 2022 in Bangkok, Thailand (Bangkok and online). The regional review and appraisal meeting will inform the Fourth Global Review of the Madrid Plan of Action at the Commission for Social Development in 2023.
