This content is about the global demographic changes that are happening, and how they will affect the way we think of sustainable development. It discusses the twofold shift in the world's age pyramid and how it will affect economic development and inequality. It also looks at how countries with aging populations will need to implement different public policies, and how countries with young populations will need to invest in education and jobs for their citizens. Finally, it suggests that a new global pact for sustainable development needs to be created to address these issues.
