Madrid+10. Ten years later, where do we stand?
6 October 2011 -- Madrid, Spain
On the occasion of the International Day of Older Persons, the United Nations launched Madrid+10 on 6 October 2011. The Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA) and the Political Declaration adopted at the Second United Nations World Assembly on Ageing in 2002 marked a turning point in how the world has been addressing the key challenge of population ageing.
The review and appraisal of the Madrid Plan takes place every five years. The second review and appraisal process (Madrid+10) started in 2011 and will involve regional reviews in 2012 and a global review in 2013 at the Commission for Social Development.
