This article explores how the global population is ageing at a time when climate variability is increasing. It advocates the development of ‘climate gerontology’ to minimise the negative impact of environmental change on older people. Climate gerontology can examine the unique challenges and needs of older people in coping with extreme weather events. It can contribute to our understanding of the everyday challenges of growing old in a changing climate and how we can achieve the ‘longevity dividend’.

The UN High Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post 2015 Development Agenda was created in July 2012 with the purpose of establishing the best ways to reduce global poverty beyond 2015, the date at which the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expire. This new report by the panel argues that a new development agenda should carry forward the spirit of the Millennium Declaration and the best of the MDGs, with a practical focus on issues such as poverty, hunger, water, sanitation, education and healthcare.
