The TA will help to produce an organized body of knowledge which informs policymakers and the general public about (1) where East and Southeast Asian pension systems are today (2) where they need to go and (3) what they need to do to get there. By creating, organizing and disseminating policy relevant knowledge about the region's pension systems, ADB can assist its DMCs to learn from the experiences of each other, and to build up pension systems which promote the inclusion of a large and growing segment of the population the elderly in the development process. East Asia's demographic realities mean that the political and economic constraints to sustaining rapid economic growth will become overwhelming in the absence of effective pension systems. Therefore, the case for pension reform is as much economic as social.
