International Expert Dialogue on Mountains, People and Climate Change

Kathmandu, Nepal
From: 22.05.2024 to: 23.05.2024

The Government of Nepal is eager to work with other governments and agencies, especially mountain countries and partners, to better recognize and promote mountain agendas and solutions. Nepal has promoted mountain agendas with regional and international partners since 2009.

This expert dialogue on mountains, people and climate change aims to strengthen, coordinate, and prioritize mountain-based actions in the context of climate change and encourage mountain countries and agencies to collaborate on UNFCCC
mountain work programs and mandates.

This discourse should allow governments and stakeholders in mountain countries and their allies to better understand
mountain-climate concerns and solutions, share expertise and experience, and enable synergies. More crucially, the
dialogue aims to produce concrete roadmaps and strategies for mountains at the Expert Dialogue on Mountains and
Climate Change in SBSTA 60 session and beyond.

The dialogue aims to:

• Develop a shared platform"Group of Mountain Partnership" to raise awareness of mountain vulnerability to climate change, promote collaboration for common understanding and position of the mountainous countries’, and give mountain
communities their due in international and regional processes.

• Explore and exchange knowledge, research, and innovative solutions for adapting to climate change, minimizing loss and damage to mountain peoples and their livelihoods, and optimizing clean energy transition.

• Promote multilateralism, collaboration, and partnerships concerning technology transfer, capacity development, and climate finance for mountainous nations and their inhabitants.

Date and Venue: The workshop will be held in Kathmandu, Nepal from 22-24 May 2024.

Participants: More than 200 participants from various mountainous countries, international communities and
development partners, international non-government organizations, private sectors and civil society organizations
will join the event.
