The International Network of Mountain Indigenous Peoples (INMIP) announces its fifth Horizontal Learning Exchange, to be held on 26-31 July 2018 in Kyrgyzstan. The Public Foundation Bio-Muras and other Kyrgyz partner organizations will host the weeklong exchange, in coordination with the Secretariat of the INMIP at Asociación ANDES.

The exchange will consist of three main events:

• A public policy forum on “Mountains, climate change and migration” will bring together diverse stakeholders to discuss the impacts of climate change, migration trends and biocultural heritage-based adaptation strategies, as well as capacity development needs.
• The INMIP’s annual meeting will address governance and administrative matters, identify network priorities, collaborative activities, policy engagement and network/institutional development opportunities.

The INMIP Secretariat will provide additional details about the exchange as they become available. For further information, please contact the members of the organizing team:
