UNIDOP 2022 is a call to action and opportunity, with globally representative older women, parliamentarians, and UN representatives offering multi-stakeholder dialogue on the resilience of living through and responding to climate disaster, conflict, or pandemic, experiencing and managing the physical and emotional disruption to losses of family, income, and social connectedness. Panels will highlight relevant actions that include efforts toward inclusion of older persons, protection of their human rights, and contributions to sustainable development.
