Date and Time

Meeting
Eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 11)

Several of the about 200 members of the Mountain Partnership (Governments, IGOs and NGOs) are involved in protecting mountain biodiversity. 10 years after the launch of this Alliance and the International Year of Mountains 2002, we need to take stock of the main achievements and identify the challenges ahead. The CBD programme of work on Mountain Biodiversity provides an institutional context to undertake this exercise. The Mountain Partnership is a platform for discussing about these issues and identifying common solutions and strategies.
