UNECE
• Commitment 1 of the Regional Implementation
Strategy (RIS):
“To mainstream ageing in all policy fields with
the aim of bringing societies and economies into
harmony with demographic change to achieve a
society for all ages.”
11
What is ‘Mainstreaming Ageing?’
UNECE
“a strategy and a process leading to a greater social integration of
older persons and to the inclusion of ageing into all aspects of social,
political, economic and cultural life.”
• Requires that ageing be considered in all policy areas on all levels, not
just as a separate stand-alone policy area
• Should involve all stakeholders, so that the needs of all age groups
are considered
• Participatory approach: should integrate not only governments but
also target groups and other stakeholders into policy-making
• Policy-making should be evidence-based.

2. Improve ageing-related policies and programmes
3. Integrate internationally-agreed commitments into national
policy framework
4. Capitalise on experience of successful policy examples in other
countries
5. Raise awareness of authorities and public.

Road Maps – the approach
UNECE
• Break down abstract policy frameworks such as MIPAA/RIS to
individual needs of a country
• Translate internationally-agreed MIPAA/RIS commitments into
actions that consider the circumstances of the country
• Provide a plan of concrete steps
 recommendations on policy directions
 timetable for action
• Involve international experts, local consultants, UNECE
secretariat.

Road Map – criteria for country
involvement
UNECE
• Countries should be committed to implementing MIPAA/RIS:
– Focal point on ageing in place as contact point
– National policy framework as reference document
– Recognition of need for local capacity building
• Countries support the preparation of the Road Map:
– Appoint a national co-ordinator for the road map
– Facilitate access to relevant documents and data in advance
– Establish contacts to relevant governmental and non-governmental
stakeholders
– Provide for translation into local language
– Assist in launching the document and dissemination of results
• Implementing the recommendations made
– Willingness to undergo evaluation of implementation after one year.

Road Maps – preparation
UNECE
• Desk Study: analyse the country’s ageing situation based on
available publications, documents and data
• Field Study: verify the findings of the desk study and identify
additional factors; interviews with government officials and other
stakeholders
• Road Map: document drafted by UNECE and additional experts,
providing guidance for future steps; review by local experts and a
discussion in the UNECE Working Group on Ageing; launch and press
release.

Road Maps – Implementation &
Evaluation
• Implementation: government is requested to adjust policy
framework and to take necessary steps in response to the
recommendations of the Road Map. Involvement throughout
drafting process ensures ownership and commitment
• Evaluation: Efforts made and outcomes achieved in
implementing the Road Map are evaluated one year after its
launch, based on information provided by the country and
information collected during a follow-up mission by
international experts.
