The Roundtable "Decent Work for All" on June 25, from 9.30-12.30, is a side event to the Prague presidency conference on CSO development effectiveness on June 23-24 (see http://trialog-information-service.blogspot.com/2009/05/june-23-24-2009-czech-presidency-cso.html).
In many developing countries, older people are one of the poorest population groups, in particular where there are no public pension schemes. Unless action is taken now to improve the situation, 1.2 billion older people will be living without secure incomes by 2050. Older people who are poor have no choice but to work, usually in the informal sector where they have no legal protection for their rights, access to social protection and formal support networks. These issues and the findings from HelpAge International’s study on older workers in Bangladesh, Peru and Uganda will be discussed at the Roundtable.
Location: Zivot 90, Karolíny Světlé 18, Praha 1; the organisers ask to register by Friday 19th June.
