Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Humanity faces unprecedented challenges of the current COVID-19 pandemic, persistent health crises, demographic shifts, conflict, and unsustainable environmental demands. At the 26th annual UN climate change conference (COP26), countries pledged to protect the population and planetary health through sustainable leadership for climate-resilient health systems. Each life stage is influenced by fiscal measures, education and employment, environment, social and commercial. “In the world of uncertainty, nothing can be said to be certain, except death, maybe because the longevity trends have undergone unprecedented changes. Longevity has not only increased but has also become increasingly uncertain, putting pressure on individuals, companies and governments to bear the risk of longer and more uncertain post-retirement periods. How these longevity trends evolve will affect population structure, health, individual savings, government expenditure and company balance sheets, and the failure to predict these trends has resulted in the emergence of a major source of risk—Longevity Risk. Longevity trends worldwide continue to rise, and the increase has been particularly noticeable. Despite this, life expectancy still lags behind all regions except Africa.

This Special Issue aims to collect recent results in the research area of longevity risk management sustainable decisions. We invite papers presenting original research, Case Studies, Commentaries and Systematic Literature Reviews on related topics.
