3. HelpAge network campaigning for improved rights for older people in Nepal. Read the compelling story by HelpAge partner, Ageing Nepal.

4. Want to conduct a cost-benefit analysis? Find the new guidelines — developed by the East Asia and Pacific regional office — and learn how to increase your organisation’s accountability and funding.

5. Read the latest PensionWatch briefing on pensions in China. The briefing describes three phases of pension development in China — from a narrow focus on formal sector workers to the recent drive for universal coverage.

«I have worked at HelpAge’s regional office in Latin America based in La Paz, Bolivia for the last three years as regional communications officer.

«I have over 20 years of working experience in campaigning for social change at local, national and regional level both within the public and private sector.»
