Sustainable Mountain
Development Conference

From the Mountain Agenda to the
International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development

Established in 1992 prior to the Rio Earth Summit (UN Conference on Environment and Development) the Mountain Agenda is an informal group of people, drawn from the academic and development cooperation communities worldwide, who have a professional interest in enhancing the position of mountains on the global development and environment agenda
In 2022, the United Nations General Assembly declared the year 2022 as the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development to increase awareness for the importance of sustainable mountain development, and the conservation and sustainable use of mountain ecosystems
In between both of these historic events, significant progress and improvements have been made in mountain biodiversity conservation, cultural conservation; education, scientific research methods, tourism development, and art.
The purpose of the conference is to explore each of these sectors from the perspective of globally renowned professionals in the physical and social research sciences, education, development, art, filmmaking, tourism, and conservation.

We hope you will join
