Guidelines for including ageing and older people in development and humanitarian policy & practice

To this end, the guidelines outline the policy framework for engaging with older people in development (section 1.2) and key factors associated with working with older people (section 1.3), before presenting some introductory guidance for organisations to consider in their work (section 2). This guidance addresses external action and programming (section 2.1), the role of advocacy (section 2.2), and considerations for organisations’ internal systems and procedures (section 2.3). Finally, the guidelines provide a brief reference document containing key questions for consideration in a range of humanitarian and development thematic sectors, and a list of key resources that policy makers and practitioners can refer to for further information (Annex I).
