According to the resolution, all government entities should work to meet the criteria of the Global Network for Age-friendly Cities.

They should aim to engage older persons in the society and providing them with the appropriate support to make Sharjah more age-friendly.   

The resolution stipulates that the time frame of joining the Network for Age-friendly Cities is from October 2016 until October 2020, or obtaining the international accreditation “Sharjah is an essential Age-Friendly City”, whichever is earlier.

Under the supervision of Sharjah Executive Council, SEC, a committee should be formed to follow up the ongoing directions.

It will also be tasked with overseeing the implementation of this resolution.

The resolution is effective from the date of its issuance.

Competent authorities should implement its provisions.
