More elderly people in the world and Sweden - what does politics look like?

October 1 is International Day of the Elderly, a day when the conditions of the elderly around the world receive special attention.

This year, we highlight the latest UN forecasts for the world's population and the challenges posed by the growing number and proportion of seniors across (almost) the entire world, specifically for Sweden's and other states' commitments in Agenda 2030 and in particular its leitmotif 'Leave no-one behind'. 

Against this background, the work of the government's senior delegation and Sweden's policy for global development (PGU) will also be affected.
