Climate change in an ageing world

This paper outlines the impacts of climate change which are currently being experienced as evidenced by the IPCC and identifies the current and future implications for older people, including an assessment of how livelihoods, healthcare, nutrition and energy are particularly affected by our changing climate. It reiterates the global call for an immediate binding agreement during COP21 and makes 10 recommendations to ensure that the national commitments, which will form the basis of its implementation, address the specific needs of older people.
