Purpose of the meeting

The meeting will focus on preparing all participants for the anticipated debates within the forthcoming UN inter-government process, allow governments (from countries at all stages of ageing) to participate and learn from one another, and assure that all participants leave the meeting with a better understanding of how SDG indicators can be used to monitor the well-being of older persons, and the preparedness of ageing societies particularly in the light of resilient and sustainable development.
