Social Policies Catalogue on Population Ageing

The Social Policies Catalogue on Population Ageing seeks to systematically identify and collate available social policies on population ageing on a global scale. 

Through the course of developing this catalogue, we learned that no country in the Asia-Pacific region has a single comprehensive policy that addresses all aspects of the dynamic population transition of ageing. 

This compilation or rapid scoping review is all the more timely as the world grapples with the COVID-19 crisis and seeks to regain lost ground in achieving the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals or (SDGs) with their promise of leaving no one behind. 

It is our hope that this catalogue will enable governments to learn from and improve on existing policies, to further our efforts on successful ageing and shape strategies for the region.

The catalogue also provides an important opportunity for governments to learn from each other, in the spirit of South-South and Triangular Cooperation.
