CSD 17 Partnerships Fair working session

UN Headquarters, New York, US
From: 06.05.2009 to:

Mountain Partnership Event


The Mountain Partnership Working Session, ‘Promoting mountain economies: high value, high quality products for better lives’, will be held on 6 May 2009 as side event at Seventeenth Session of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development, in New York. The working session aims to provide participants of the event with information about the potential of a value chain approach to develop high-value products and local economies, the types of products or services that show promising results and the processes involved in contributing to successful ventures that feed into local development. Ideally participants will be in a position to promote such approaches in their own countries, understand potential constraints and how to overcome them, and be willing to foster strong enabling environments to support such actions.
