Four key networks support the RIS follow-up process:

Task Force

Besides the specific mandate given to the European Centre, the Memorandum of Understanding (pdf format) also agreed on the establishment by the Austrian Government and the UNECE of a Task Force, whose function is "to offer guidance and advice to the contents and priorities of the follow-up". The Task Force was constituted in Madrid in April 2004.

Focal Points

The network of National Focal Points on Ageing plays a key role in the follow-up process. The Focal Points are the national contacts in the 55 European Centre (EC.V) / UNECE countries regarding issues on "Mainstreaming Ageing" and on the follow-up to the Regional Implementation Strategy (RIS) of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA, 2002). In particular, they are expected to support the MA:IMI project at the European Centre in gathering information about political processes, programmes and actions, and help and advise MA:IMI researchers on collecting and interpreting data for the indicators.

NGO Network on Monitoring RIS

This Network is conceived as the NGO counterpart to the Network of National Focal Points on Ageing. Members of the NGO Network on Monitoring RIS are national NGOs that are specifically committed to watch age policies and social policy measures in their respective countries, thus giving a civil-society view of the progress made in the implementation of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and its Regional Implementation Strategy. Their representatives act as resource persons vis-a-vis Government representatives and civil society at large in their respective countries.

Members of the NGO Network on Monitoring RIS spread knowledge about the MIPAA and RIS texts among grass roots organisations, engage in an exchange of information with Network members and other actors of the follow-up process in other UNECE Member States, and are a source of information for national Governments and International Institutions.
