Montañas del Ecuador: paisajes de vida

Take advantage of the celebration of International Mountain Day to:

Visualize Ecuadorian mountains as landscapes of life, as mosaics of protected and transformed spaces, both rural and urban, with critical functions for the livelihoods of the Ecuadorian population.

Characterize the importance of landscapes that are key to Ecuador's sustainable development and vital for the maintenance of ecosystem services such as water, biodiversity and food sovereignty, recognizing the progress made in their conservation and showing the challenges that remain for their integrated management.

Strengthen knowledge management and governance processes that contribute to the sustainable management of the country's mountain landscapes, fostering science-policy dialogues and strengthening the network of actors working in the sustainable development of high altitude ecosystems.
