Age-Friendly Environments in Europe: Indicators, Monitoring and Assessments

The WHO Regional Office for Europe has published the report “Age-friendly environments in Europe: indicators, monitoring and assessments” (original: “Altersgerechte Umfelder in Europa: Indikatoren, Monitoring und Bewertungen”). This publication in German examines the contribution of information systems, indicators, monitoring and assessment to the success and sustainability of age-friendly policy initiatives. Among others, it sets out SHARE as a potential source for drawing a comprehensive picture of the situation of older people and their quality of life. It further examines existing age-friendly initiatives in Europe and the various ways in which these are supported by measurement, monitoring and tailored communication tools.
