Building Forward Better for Older Persons post COVID-19
2-5 March 2021, Virtual
With the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as a background for discussions, this Expert Group meeting will bring together international experts, representatives of member states and relevant stakeholders to explore and propose some specific recommendations on how to ensure that ageing and older persons are adequately addressed, included, and actively engaged in post COVID-19 recovery efforts.
The conclusions and recommendations of this expert group meeting will serve to position DESA to better support Member States in the context of two important policy processes: (a) The implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
(b) The General Assembly open-ended working group for the purpose of strengthening the protection of the human rights of older persons
