Part IV. Emerging Issues in the Context of the Decade

The special or emerging issues presented in this section are relevant in themselves, but also because the current process of demographic transition is expected to increase the population's demands for solutions to the challenges posed. This may be through the visibility of old problems, the promotion of new issues in the public policy debate or by encouraging the search for solutions to meet the needs of societies. Given the dynamic nature of the aging process, it is expected that new issues and approaches will emerge in the coming years.
