Today’s government and business leaders are confronting a new challenge that is impacting economic growth and prosperity: changing demographics. As populations around the world age, the labor force will decline by 40% and by 2030, the average loss in productivity due to ill health in the working age population will reach 8.6% GDP.  This tremendous downward pressure on growth has the potential to derail needed development gains and generations of prosperity. Mitigation will require innovation, collaboration, and a sense of shared urgency between multilateral organizations, governments, civil society and the private sector. 

Join our expert group of panelists from organizations like Foreign Policy, AARP, Milken Institute, and others to discuss how we can accelerate the models of cooperation and partnership to maximize the potential for productivity in the next 50 years.
