Sixteenth meeting of the Standing Working Group on Ageing

20 - 22 November 2023
Room VII Palais des Nations Geneva Switzerland

 

The Standing Working Group on Ageing (SWGA) is an intergovernmental body which is subsidiary to the Executive Committee of UNECE. First convened in 2008, its membership consists of national focal points on ageing representing the member States of the UNECE region. Representatives of NGOs, academia, and international organizations participate as observers.

SWGA aims to help all countries in the UNECE region to mainstream the population ageing in their policy and regulatory framework, adjust to demographic change and create an environment that is conductive to the full realization of the individual and societal potential of longevity.

The SWGA meets annually in November in Geneva, where it reviews the achievements and developments of the past year and sets the agenda of work for the year to come. The sixteenth meeting took place on 20-22 November 2023.
