Welcome to the World Mountain Forum 2018

Mountains in a Changing World: Strengthening Partnerships and Pathways Towards a Thriving Mountain Future

Mountain communities and ecosystems are transforming under emerging drivers of global change. The pronounced vulnerability of mountain people and ecosystems to the negative effects of global change make building adaptive capacity and resilience an urgent priority. Developing and identifying solutions to enhance mountain livelihoods and well-being in a sustainable manner must be built on inclusive, just and environmentally friendly foundations to be sustainable in the long term. The World Mountain Forum (WMF) is uniquely positioned to provide a timely space for policy-makers, scientists and practitioners to share experiences and best practices, and develop integrated solutions to existing challenges to sustainable development in mountain regions.
