Summary

Globally, over the next 40 years, the number of people, aged 60 and over is set to grow by one and a quarter billion. More than 80 per cent of these people will be living in developing regions, such as Asia, Africa, and Latin America. What are the implications of this for the world? What will old age be like for these people? This book offers a general, critical review of the current state of knowledge on population ageing and older people in developing countries. It combines a wide range of perspectives from development studies, social gerontology, social policy, and demography into a single, original, and coherent book. It examines the neglected topic of ageing and international development alongside the experiences of older people. Population Ageing and International Development will be the main reference point for teaching and research in the field.
