Mountain Partnership Steering Committee meeting

The Mountain Partnership Steering Committee met on 26-27 March 2019 at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) headquarters in Rome, Italy.

The SC members reflected on how to ensure that mountains are fully included in the 2030 Agenda, by addressing issues related to advocacy and governance, and exchanged views on regional perspectives.

They discussed how to operationalize the priorities of the MP including resource mobilization, and addressed raising visibility of the MP, including communication and outreach, as well as the 2019 - 2020 event-planning calendar.

The SC members also discussed how to engage MP members as well as organizations and governments, which are not part of the MP.  The SC also took a decision over the IMD themes for 2019 and 2020, reviewed the results of the membership survey, the MP voting system, and agreed on the revision of the MP Governance and Strategy.

Lastly, the 2019 work plan of the Mountain Partnership Secretariat and members’ responsibilities were also reviewed.

CIMO is a member of the MP Steering committee since 2017.
