Sustainable Mountain Development 

Mountain ecosystems are fragile due to their steep slopes, harsh climate, frequent extreme weather events and increasing pressure from inappropriate land use practices. Mountain areas are in addition strongly affected by climate change. As a result of this dynamic environment and other factors such as isolation and poverty, mountain people are considered highly vulnerable. Sustainable Mountain Development is a comprehensive approach to increase the resilience of mountains through environmental sustainability and improving the situation for people living in mountainous areas, while ensuring services and resources for lower regions.

Elements of watershed management, disaster risk management, advocacy, ecosystem services, sustainable livelihoods as well as knowledge management are combined in our work to achieve Sustainable Mountain Development.
