    I would say (2), but with a comma between your two adjectives, please. Also, I assume you accidentally omitted the ‘protection’ in sentences (2) and (3)?

    Welcome to the English forum, HandsomeJack! :)

    It is difficult to comment unless you give us a sentence (which the forum rules ask you to do). :)
    These are meant to be titles of an essay. All should start 'Improving income protection...' Apologies if these aren't true sentences. How about the following sentences then?

    1. Improving income protection for the elderly poor in Ecuador is a difficult proposition.

    2. Improving income protection for the poor elderly population in Ecuador is a difficult proposition.

    3. Improving income protection for the impoverished elderly population in Ecuador is a difficult proposition.

    Now that it is clear this is an essay title, you don't need a sentence.

    My favourite is:
    Improving income protection for the elderly poor in Ecuador
