Comparative Analysis of Countries’ Ageing Challenges & Policies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter provides a comparative summary and analysis of the key findings in this book. It reveals both similarities and differences in the way that ageing is defined, the nature of the challenges of ageing in the diverse countries included from the Asia Pacific and Indian Ocean regions, and the plethora of government and private sector strategies, policies and plans adopted in response to these challenges. It suggests that, in all included countries, more resources and efforts will need to be provided in order to effectively address the significant challenges ahead. A series of practical suggestions are included for all stakeholders involved with ageing populations to consider in their attempts to reach the targets of the UN’s sustainable development goals.
