6-8 December | Siem Reap

ASEAN made a commitment to empower older people and strengthen their capacity in the Kuala Lumpur Declaration on Ageing (2015). One of the key strategies there is to encourage the development of older people’s associations (OPAs) across the region. In December, a workshop was co-organised by the Cambodian Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation and HelpAge International, supported by the EU and the Republic of Korea, for ASEAN member states to learn about OPAs and to share their experience, best practices and challenges.
