Mountains ADAPT: Solutions from the South Caucasus


To mark the official launch of the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has published two new booklets, titled Mountains ADAPT. They feature 27 concrete solutions in mountainous areas to adapt to the climate crisis – 18 in East Africa and nine in the South Caucasus. The material was produced under the Adaptation at Altitude programme, which is financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and implemented by UNEP and partners.

The solutions – many of which are nature-based – seek to diversify livelihoods and build new income opportunities. They work with nature, strengthen resilience, and contribute to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030.
