Proceedings of the 2022 Ministerial Conference on Ageing


The 2022 UNECE Ministerial Conference on Ageing (Rome, Italy, 16-17 June 2022) concluded the fourth cycle of review and appraisal of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA) and its Regional Implementation Strategy (RIS).

These proceedings provide a summary of the Conference deliberations, as well as a synthesis of the policy progress made between 2017 and 2022 to advance active and healthy ageing, promote the participation and autonomy of older persons, and to reform social protection and long-term care systems in a way that ensures their sustainability and intergenerational fairness. The document also features the 2022 Rome Ministerial Declaration on Ageing, which outlines policy priorities for 2022-2027 in UNECE countries to achieve a sustainable world for all ages.
