Five Years of Action for the Development of Mountain Regions

The main outcome of the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development 2022 was the declaration of 2023–2027 as Five Years of Action for the Development of Mountain Regions.

Activities planned for the period aim to enhance the international community's awareness of issues affecting mountain countries and to give new impetus to efforts aimed at addressing their challenges. Proclamation of the Five Years of Action was proposed by the Government of Kyrgyzstan; it was included in the final draft of the triennial resolution on sustainable mountain development, which was approved by the United Nations General Assembly on 22 November 2022 and co-sponsored by 110 governments.
