The government of Peru, following its long-term commitment to the sustainable development of mountain regions, has taken the lead in the organization of a Mountain Pavilion to be held at the UNCSD Rio+20 summit, in collaboration with several regional and global partners.

At the Mountain Pavilion all stakeholders, including the private sector, will be able to showcase their work within a multi-purpose space for promoting sustainable development in mountain regions.

The Pavilion will be at the Athletes’ Park, between 13 and 24 June 2012, and open to the general public between 13 and 18 June from 11 to 19 hours. Specifically, the Mountain Pavilion will facilitate the following:

  • High level Ministerial Meeting on Sustainable Mountain Development
  • The Third Global Meeting of the Mountain Partnership
  • Side events highlighting the contribution of mountain regions to green growth
  • Thematic Conferences, workshops and multi-stakeholder dialogue
  • Stands and a project market place
  • Posters and exhibitions
  • Multimedia presentations
  • Press (social media, podcasts, live streaming, radio/TV, press conferences etc.)

 

If you have concrete proposals for activities to be hosted at the Mountain Pavilion or you are willing to provide financial or another kind of support, please contact the Organizing Committee by writing to pavilion@mtnforum.org before 10 May 2012.
