In this session, academia will investigate proxy indicators of the Active Ageing Index and dependency in multi-ethnic urban (Jakarta) and rural (Sumedang and Borobudur) districts on Java, Indonesia. The results show that there are huge inter-regional differences in dependency.

Asia is the next giant in ageing. But unlike Western countries, parts of Asia will grow old before they become rich. The number of elderly people in Asia by 2030 will increase by 200 million, a 71% increase. The Asia Pacific Risk Center estimates that elderly health care in Asia could increase five-fold to $2.5 trillion by 2030, if current cost trends remain unchecked. How to manage increased demand without draining public purses is one of the most urgent policy and economic challenges facing the region. But the burden should not rest solely on the shoulders of governments. The private sector has much to contribute, and could benefit considerably from the growing ageing market. This session will bring together leading minds from the private sector to discuss how to help Asian cities make the transition to older societies that are still healthy and productive.

Global cities have moved into an era of smart city planning and implementation while their populations are also shifting toward an ageing society. This session invites worldwide leaders in elderly care to share their views on ways to develop long-term care policies and programs which integrate internationally recognized concepts such as “aging in place” and “active and healthy aging”. Such policies and programs demand better planning, financing, and qualified human resources, and above all, higher expectations that the final years of life must have as much meaning, purpose, and well-being as possible.
