Produced by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat, this report provides national policy makers with advice on implementing the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing, the global policy document concerned with the implications of population ageing and the well-being of older persons. The report. The report takes two broad approaches: "the development of effective age-specific policies that facilitate the mainstreaming of older persons' concerns into all aspects of development and policy-making" and "the application of a holistic intergenerational life-course approach that emphasizes equity and inclusiveness for all age groups." After presenting the conceptual framework in line with these approaches, the report addresses how to promote a harmonious relationship between development and demographic change, how to make social protection work effectively for older persons, how to take population ageing into account in health policy, how to explore long-term care in different settings, and how to promote social inclusion and political participation for older persons.
