The UNECE Ministerial Conference on Ageing completes the third review and appraisal cycle (2012-2017) of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and its Regional Implementation Strategy (MIPAA/RIS). The focus is on ‘Realizing the potential of living longer’. Conference panels will address this theme through the lens of:
1) Recognizing the potential of older persons
2) Encouraging longer working life and ability to work
3) Ageing with dignity
The Ministerial Conference on Ageing is organized by UNECE in cooperation with the Government of Portugal, under the coordination of the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity, and Social Security.
A civil society forum and a research forum will precede the Ministerial Conference on 20 September 2017.
