Mountain Forum: A Global Network for Mountain Communities, Environment and Sustainable Development
Mountain Forum is a global network of individuals and organisations concerned with the well being of mountain people, their environments and cultures.
Mountain Forum seeks to bring lessons and experiences of mountain people into policy discussions at national and international levels with the aim to improve their livelihood and promote the conservation of mountain environments and cultures.
In order to achieve these objectives, Mountain Forum uses modern and traditional communications, supports networking and capacity building and encourages members to be proactive in advocating sustainable development of mountain areas. Mountain Forum's electronic information services include global, regional, and thematic discussion lists, focused e-conferences, a calendar of events, and a rapidly growing online library of mountain resources.
