Global Ageing

Global Ageing
Global Ageing
Populations are growing older in nearly all the countries of the world. Ageing is not only results from the increased longevity, but also from the combination of decreasing mortality and declining fertility. On the other hand, ageing process could reflect some extent of socioeconomic development, social conditions and education across the world as population have been ageing for over a century in more developed countries and the current ageing process began recently in most less developed countries (Kinsella and Phillips, 2005). This chapter focuses on four aspects of geographical gerontology perspective of global ageing. First, we introduce the patterns and diversity of global ageing; second, we discuss older people in emergency situations across the world; third, globally climate change issues and health of older people; and fourth, we consider the contemporary socio-technological trends such as increased mobility and interconnectedness for older people.

Abstract

Populations are growing older in nearly all the countries of the world. Ageing is not only results from the increased longevity, but also from the combination of decreasing mortality and declining fertility. On the other hand, ageing process could reflect some extent of socioeconomic development, social conditions and education across the world as population have been ageing for over a century in more developed countries and the current ageing process began recently in most less developed countries (Kinsella and Phillips, 2005). This chapter focuses on four aspects of geographical gerontology perspective of global ageing. First, we introduce the patterns and diversity of global ageing; second, we discuss older people in emergency situations across the world; third, globally climate change issues and health of older people; and fourth, we consider the contemporary socio-technological trends such as increased mobility and interconnectedness for older people.
