MIPAA meets SDG1: Responses to old-age poverty in the UNECE region

On the occasion of the 56th Session of the Commission of Social Development that took place from 29 January to 7 February 2018 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, the UNECE Working Group on Ageing held a side event exploring how the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and its Regional Implementation Strategy can contribute to the implementation of SDG1 (on eradicating poverty). Austria, France and Norway shared policy strategies addressing the risk of old-age poverty through inclusive policies and the promotion of active ageing.
