Sustainable Mountain Development Conference



In 2022, the United Nations General Assembly declared the year 2022 as the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development to increase awareness for the importance of sustainable mountain development, and the conservation and sustainable use of mountain ecosystems

In between both of these historic events, significant progress and improvements have been made in mountain biodiversity conservation, cultural conservation; education, scientific research methods, tourism development, and art.
