Sustainability of pension systems in the new EU member states and Croatia: Coping with aging challenges and fiscal pressures
World Bank Working Paper 129 published
World Bank
Jan 2008 Europe (including EU) Pension Reform, European Union members, European Union issues, Administration
The World Bank has published Working Paper 129: "Sustainability of pension systems in the new EU member states and Croatia: Coping with aging challenges and fiscal pressures" which concerns recent pension reforms in Europe. All European countries are profoundly affected by aging populations resulting from lower fertility and increased life expectancy. In order to make pension systems more sustainable in light of prospective demographic developments, and in some cases to address current financing problems, EU10+1countries have been reforming their pension systems since the mid-1990s. The reforms have combined measures to delay retirement, link benefits more closely to contributions, and diversify risk. This report concludes that some countries (in particular, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Romania) will need to do more to safeguard the long-term viability of their pension systems, and others face ongoing and future challenges in ensuring equitable pension systems and adequate living standards for all elderly people.

Urgent Pension Reforms Needed in the Middle East and North Africa
Urgent pension reforms needed in the Middle East and North Africa
World Bank
23 Aug 2005 Yemen, Tunisia, Syrian Arab Republic, Morocco, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Algeria, Djibouti Pension Reform, Countries - excl. European Union and US
Pension systems in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are under growing financial stress and urgently need reform, according to a new World Bank report released today called "Pensions in the Middle East & North Africa: Time for Change". The report is the first ever regional review of more than 30 pension systems in 13 countries and calls for a series of measures that would allow governments to gradually reform their unsustainable pensions systems, and thus avoid future crises. According to the report, pension systems in the region face problems in terms of limited coverage, fragmented administration, and system design that negatively affect incentives and equity. The report suggests that pensions systems try to offer too much in terms of benefits.

Pension Reform in Europe: Progress and Process
A study of pension reform required across Europe
World Bank
May 2003 Europe (including EU) Pension Reform
This report maintains that countries across Europe, including current European Union (EU) member states, and EU accession countries (EUA) in Central, Eastern, and Southern Europe must undertake urgent pension reform to allow their rapidly ageing populations, especially women, to retire without a sharp reduction in living standards. The report says that rising budget costs, changing patterns in contemporary society, and the financial requirements of European economic integration, are driving an unavoidable case for comprehensive, pan-European  pensions reform.
