CIMO with EUROMONTANA are the new representatives of Major Group Organizations of Europe in the Steering Committee of the Mountain Partnership for the next four years. CIMO/EUROMONTANA were elected during the 5th Global Meeting that took place in FAO headquarters in Rome from December 11 to 13.
The Mountain Partnership is a United Nations voluntary alliance of more than 300 partners from governments, intergovernmental organizations, major groups (e.g. civil society, NGOs and the private sector) and subnational authorities. The Mountain Partnership was founded in 2002 to address challenges faced by mountain regions around the world and to protect mountain environments and to improve the lives of mountain peoples.
The Steering Committee provides programmatic orientation to the Mountain Partnership, oversees the preparation of a four-year strategy and a two-year workplan. The 17-member body monitors the work of the Mountain Partnership Secretariat, the implementation of the ‘Mountain Agenda’ and the achievements and impacts of their respective electoral groups.” Learn more about in the Steering Committee in the Mountain Partnership webpage.
