Loading Events

The two-day workshop will be co-hosted by the East-West Center (EWC), Asian Forum of Parliamentarians on Population and Development (AFPPD), and HelpAge International, with the generous support of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

About the Workshop

Using the National Transfer Accounts (NTA) methodology, the workshop will examine how data can reveal disparities in later life to support policy making that enables countries to prepare for rapid demographic ageing. The objectives of the workshop are:

  • To generate practical learning in using NTA evidence for developing policies addressing the diverse challenges of older people and ageing populations
  • To facilitate cross-country networking and sharing on population ageing

This workshop will bring together around 100 participants from about 20 countries in Asia and beyond, including academic experts, government officials, international organisations, civil society organisations and parliamentarians from AFPPD.
