Population ageing is becoming a major issue for international development. At the same time, processes associated with development strongly influence how later life is experienced around the world. This chapter shows that relationships between population ageing and international development are complex and two-way. Beginning with a discussion on the concept of international development, it proceeds to analyse the cause of the world's population ageing and how it varies across different countries. Specifically, it explores how processes of economic and social transformation affect population trends. The remaining part of this chapter examines the potential consequences of accelerated population ageing for future economic performance and other aspects of development.

Keywords:   population ageing, international development, social transformation, population trends, economic performance
