UNFPA's focus in the area of population ageing is guided by the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), the recommendations of ICPD+5, the goals of the Millennium Declaration and the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing adopted at the 2nd World Assembly on Ageing. UNFPA supports the implementation of the Plan at the global, regional and national levels.

This report, Population Ageing and Development: Operational Challenges in Developing Countries, part of the Population and Development Series (#5), documents the Fund's collaboration in a number of initiatives in the area of population, ageing and development, with information sourced from the Fund's country and inter-country programmes.
