The paper addresses issues of gender relations in older age, and highlights the importance of a gendered understanding of ageing for development and humanitarian policy and advocacy. Its key message is that to ensure future generations can flourish in older age, gender relations must be transformed over the life course. To this end, it calls for a gendered life-course perspective within the SDGs framework of action and makes 17 recommendations in key areas of concern to older people relating to income and poverty, care and social reproduction, health and well-being, violence, abuse and neglect, and humanitarian action.
