International cooperation

Euromontana : a European network involved at international level

Beyond its role as a European network, Euromontana is also an organisation with scientific and international vocation. Its history is linked to an initiative of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) in the 50s. This backgrounds leads naturally Euromontana to take part in international cooperation activities which link it to similar organisations on other continents.

Mountains occupy 22% of the planet surface and are home to 720 million people, representing 12% of the world’s population. 80% of them live under poverty threshold and 135 million chronically suffer from hunger.

Our cooperation actions

Adelboden group

morai2_peru_ar

The Adelboden group has been created following the International Conference on sustainable agriculture and rural development in mountain areas, which took place in Switzerland, Adelboden in June 2002. With the participation of governments, international organisations and civil society groups, the Adelboden Group defines itself through the Adelboden declaration as a « platform for discussion on policies and instruments, exchange of experience and elaboration of initiatives paysans_peru_ar

To face the growing challenges of climate change, poverty and environmental degradation affecting mountain regions, the mission of the ABG is to bridge knowledge with strategic action to promote the coordinated development of a balanced set of policies, institutions and processes based on a multi-stakeholder approach through innovative partnerships for the well-being of mountain communities and the sustainability of mountain agriculture and environments. Euromontana has been a member of the Adelboden Group since its creation.

The Adelboden Group has initiated the multi-donor FAO project « Sustainable agriculture and rural development in mountains areas » (SARD-M) to which it has then strongly contributed. Euromontana has been SARD-M Focal point for Europe.huanahuasi_peru_ar

The global forum

The mountain forum has been created in 1995, by 27 representatives of NGOs, agtaquile-bolivie-arencies, governments and experts, following the Earth summit in Rio in 1992. Heads of States and governments approved on this occasion their Agenda 21 which pointed, in its chapter 13 dedicated to sustainable development of mountain areas, the need for stronger efforts aiming at sharing information and promoting mountain territories.

Mountain Forum seeks to share the knowledge, lessons and experiences of mountain people among a wide and diverse global community of researchers, field practitioners, policy makers, civil society groups and other stakeholders related to mountains . To achieve this, Mountain forum members try to bring key issues into policy discussions at national and international levels with the aim to improve the livelihood of mountain people and to promote the conservation of mountain environmetraite_sichuan_arnts and cultures. Membership to the Mountain Forum is free and open to anyone willing to participate.
