This publication by the World Health Organization (WHO) provides a toolbox to guide local policy-makers and planners in developing, implementing and evaluating age-friendly policies and interventions policies that support people to age actively and healthily and thus both to do the things that are important to them and to contribute to their communities. Based on lessons learned from existing age-friendly initiatives in Europe, this publication summarises key factors for establishing and sustaining successful initiatives within four phases of the policy process: engaging, planning, implementing and evaluating. A wealth of examples illustrate how local governments have put the principles of age-friendly action into practice. The role of carers is mentioned and taken into consideration through the document, which can serve as a source of inspiration for Eurocarers’ potential future work around the use of European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF).
