Disaster Risk and Age Index
Ranking of 190 countries
We have launched the first Disaster Risk and Age Index at the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai.
The Index ranks 190 countries on the disaster risk faced by older people. Older people in Somalia, Central African Republic and Afghanistan face the highest risk. The lowest risk for older people is in Malta and Finland.

Working with older people: Practical guidelines
Do you work with older people in the developing world? Need practical information on how to tailor programmes to older people's needs?
We have new practical guidelines for programme managers and people working with older people, drawing on experience in the HelpAge network.
Please use the guidelines for your own work, training or as a basis for producing more detailed, locally relevant materials.
