Policy needs to reflect the reality of an aging population

With the world population getting older and people living longer, the world is going to be a less secure place. That’s according to Susan Yoshihara, the vice president of the US-based Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute. She also says there will be a global reordering of powers, where great countries fall and others rise. Yoshihara was at the United Nations for a weeklong debate on fertility, reproductive health and development. That’s the topic for the 44th session of the Commission on Population and Development. Julie Walker sat down with Yoshihara at UN Radio studios in New York.
