The World Mountain Forum (WMF), scheduled to take place from 23-24 May 2014 in Cusco, Peru, will provide a platform to promote sustainable mountain development. The Forum is a collaborative effort of several partners including, among others, the Mountain Partnership, International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) the Ministry of the Environment of Peru, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO). The WMF aims to bring together sustainable mountain development stakeholders from around the world, to promote collaborative action and foster political dialogue, with an overall goal of articulating concrete actions and plans for concerted efforts to address the plight of these fragile ecosystems.

The Forum will convene sessions and presentations on five key topics: family farming; water and food security; climate change; mountain cities; and mountain communities. Through these discussions, WMF 2014 will showcase and discuss available local, regional and global experience in mountain development, and identify opportunities and challenges for global sustainable mountain development.

WMF 2014 is expected to produce outcomes that will feed into other relevant global initiatives and events, such as the UN Secretary General’s High-level Panel on Global Sustainability (GSP) and the post-2015 development agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) process. The Forum will also provide the opportunity for mountain countries to discuss how to ensure mountains are adequately incorporated into climate negotiations at the 20th Conference of the Parties (COP20) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Lima, Peru, in December 2014.

IISD RS will produce daily web coverage and a summary from the two-day Forum. Kindly return to this site on Saturday, 24 May 2014, for more information.
