The Food,Fuel,Finance Policy

In July 2022, with support from, we conducted a survey looking at the impact of the global food and finance crises on older people.


We have published a policy brief where we are  are urging the government to:


✅ Ensure a robust social protection system for #olderpeople which will provide them with a safety net


✅ Stabilise food prices and offer subsidies to boost food production


✅ Support livelihood diversification opportunities so that older people can rely on alternative sources of income


✅ Improve data and statistics collection methods and break it down by age and gender to better inform policy-making.
