(17 June 2020) – The Commission has today adopted its first-ever Report on the Impact of Demographic Change. It presents the drivers of this long-term change and the impact it is having across Europe.
It also highlights the links between demographic structures and the impact and recovery potential from the crisis.
The report kick-starts this Commission’s work in this area and will help identify how the people, regions and communities most affected can best be supported.
It will notably provide the foundation for the upcoming Green Paper on Ageing and Long-term Vision for Rural Areas.
The report is complemented with country fact sheets and a full statistical breakdown, which can be found on the Commission’s new dedicated webpage on demography.
