Abstract

Being uniquely positioned in terms of population growth and rapid ageing,the Asia-Pacific region is of high importance in ensuring that the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA) monitoring and implementation framework is accessible and attractive to member States, the majority of which are developing and have varied resources and research infrastructures. This paper reviews the current data collection processes of 14 countries in the Asia-Pacific region, and discusses the various frameworks being used to monitor active ageing in the global context. We consequently suggest how a more functional and sustainable set of metrics can be developed to maximise countries’ participation in the MIPAA implementation and to build ageingknowledge globally, in particular around developing countries. We conclude that a dashboard of indicators that both constructs the Active Ageing Index (AAI) and is aligned with the key priorities of the MIPAA should become part of the toolkit to monitor MIPAA implementation in the future, but so too this framework should incorporate Asia-Pacific indicators that reflect the region’s unique demographic context and priorities, such as the community support.
