The UNECE Ministerial Conference on Ageing 2022, which took place in Rome, Italy, from 16 to 17 June 2022, completed the fourth review and appraisal cycle (2017-2022) and marked the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and its Regional Implementation Strategy (MIPAA/RIS).
Under the broad theme of "Joining forces for solidarity and equal opportunities throughout life", expert panels and ministerial round tables focused on:
1) Promoting active and healthy ageing throughout life
2) Ensuring access to long-term care and support for carers and families
3) Mainstreaming ageing to advance a society for all ages
The Ministerial Conference on Ageing was organized by UNECE in collaboration with the UNECE Standing Working Group on Ageing and the Government of Italy.
A joint Forum of Civil Society and Scientific Research preceded the Ministerial Conference on 15 June 2022.
The 2022 Rome Ministerial Declaration, adopted at the Conference, set the policy agenda for MIPAA/RIS implementation between 2022-2027.
