This book demonstrates that there are wide-ranging potential  challenges in addressing issues associated with ageing populations in  both developed and developing countries of the region. This book brings  together local, national and regional perspectives on the ageing  population and sustainable development nexus in selected countries in  the Asia Pacific region.

The countries selected in this book include  a mix of developed and developing economies that all reflect strong  trade, investment and migration linkages. While the Asia Pacific region  is forecast to enjoy high growth in the coming decade, a recurring  common policy challenge is addressing the ‘demographic time bomb’ posed  by ageing populations and workforces (Montague et al., 2017).  Consequently, this book focuses on strategic policies and practices of  multiple stakeholders, primarily: governments, industry and education  systems, together with, the range of aged care services providers – in  more effectively addressing these key socio-economic challenges  associated with the ageing population for sustainable development.
