From 3 to 5 October 2016, around 260 mountain actors (researchers, farmers, environmentalists, elected representatives from local and regional authorities, representatives of chambers of commerce and development agencies) met in Bragança, Portugal during the X European Mountain Convention organised by Euromontana.
This X European Mountain Convention presented a state-of-the-art of the situation in mountain areas and how experience and technical knowledge have been used to provide solutions to adapt to and mitigate climate change. The focus was on solutions not only at the policy level, but also at the practitioners’ level.
Following two days of exchanges of good practices and debates, the representatives of Euromontana hammered out a declaration identifying their prime role and mapping out the action needed to seize this opportunity before it is lost.
