Population ageing, intergenerational transfers and social protection in Latin America and the Caribbean
In October 2009 CELADE, together with the Population Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs and in the context of the National Transfer Accounts project, organised a meeting of experts in which certain government representatives, in particular from the five countries participating in the project, as well as those from different regional and international organisations, analyzed the consequences of population ageing on economic growth and the sustainability of Latin American transfer systems using information produced in the first phase of the project. This volume presents a selection of articles that were presented there, including work by professors Ronald Lee and Andrew Mason, as well as and the national teams in each of the countries participating in the project.
The production of the document was coordinated by Tim Miller, Population Affairs Officer, and Paulo Saad, Chief of the Population and Development Area at CELADE; the editing by Colin Mullins; layout by Fernanda Stang, and translation of Chapters VI, VII and VIII from Spanish by Lila Castillo.
