Abstract

In a context of increasing population ageing, ECOSOC resolution 2015/5* mandated regional commissions to play a central role in facilitating the third review of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA), approved in 2002, to be conducted by Member States. ESCAP will therefore assist Member States in organizing their national review and appraisal exercises; organizing regional review meetings using an inclusive and coordinated approach in relation to the participation of civil society in the process; promoting networking and the sharing of information; and providing an analysis of the main findings and identifying priority areas and policy responses by 2017.

A cornerstone in analyzing progress of MIPAA implementation will be a MIPAA review survey conducted among ESCAP Member States. Government responses to the survey will provide a basis for the preparation of the Asia-Pacific regional report, which will be submitted as an input to the Secretary-General’s global report as well as considered by ESCAP member States at the Regional Review Meeting on the Implementation of MIPAA in Asia and the Pacific, which will be convened in Bangkok in the second half of 2017.

The MIPAA survey questionnaire with instructions for completion can be downloaded here.
