“Unlocking the Mountains – a new approach to rural development for Europe’s mountains”

The Fourth European Mountain Convention will take place at a particularly strategic time of European reforms affecting
the mountainous areas:

  • reform of rural development policy,
  • preparation of the European regional policy reform after 2006,
  • new proposals for funding Natura 2000 sites,
  • Adoption of the treaty instituting a European Constitution in June 2004, which now makes explicit reference to mountains, and other important institutional changes, such as the enlargement of the Union with 10 new
    Member States, many of which include mountainous areas, and the European Parliament and Commission commencing their new terms.

Non-Member State European countries, particularly Norway, Switzerland, Romania and Bulgaria, are also developing new policies concerning mountain areas. The Convention intends to:

  • explain and assess the impact of ongoing developments,
  • identify the risks and the opportunities for the mountain actors,
  • identify common proposals to achieve a better consideration of mountain issues in European policies.
