The second global review and appraisal of Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing was undertaken in 2013 at the Commission for Social Development.As part of the regional review of the Madrid International Plan of Action, ESCAP led three key preparatory processes for the Asia-Pacific region: (i) the Regional Preparatory Meeting organized by ESCAP, and hosted by the Government of China, in Beijing in November 2011; (ii) a regional intergovernmental survey on progress and challenges thus far in the implementation of the Madrid International Plan of Action: and (iii) the Asia-Pacific Intergovernmental Meeting on the Second Review and Appraisal of the Madrid International Plan of Action, held in September 2012, in Bangkok. The regional review at the Asia-Pacific Intergovernmental Meeting in 2012 led to the adoption of the Bangkok Statement on the Asia-Pacific Review of the Implementation of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing, which served as the region’s input to the global review of second global review and appraisal of MIPAA.
