The Asia-Pacific region is ageing rapidly. The percentage of people aged 60 years or over will increase from 13.6 per cent in 2020 to 24.9 per cent in 2050. These demographic shifts present challenges and opportunities that require forward-looking policies to ensure inclusive and active ageing. In 2002, United Nations Member States adopted the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA), the global action plan to “build societies for all ages”.

Since the adoption of MIPAA in 2002, there have been three regional and global reviews and appraisals. In accordance with ECOSOC resolution 2020/8 and General Assembly resolution 75/152, United Nations Member States have mandated regional commissions to conduct the Fourth Regional Review and Appraisal of MIPAA and to nominate focal points. ESCAP will organize the Fourth Review and Appraisal in Asia and the Pacific, with support from other United Nations entities in the region in 2022, with preparatory processes being undertaken through 2021 and 2022.

As part of these preparatory processes, the “Second informal consultation of ESCAP member States on the Asia-Pacific Fourth Review and Appraisal of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing: MIPAA survey check-in” will be held on 9 August 2021. Other consultations will be held throughout 2021 and 2022.
