Older Persons

Two worldwide demographic megatrends (along with population growth and international migration) are rising urbanization and population aging, and both are having long-term implications on sustainable development. Throughout our lives and into old age, this will affect how we live, work, play, and socialize in urban areas. Therefore there is a dire need to ensure that our growing cities respond to aging urban populations with perspectives and policies that can build inclusive, sustainable, secure and prosperous communities for all.
