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.

First Meeting of National Focal Points

13-15 November 2006
Segovia, Spain

Organized by the UNECE Population Activities Unit and the Institute for Older Persons and Social Services (IMSERSO) of Spain, with support from the UNFPA.

More information can be found on the
website of the meeting.
