The Word Mountain Forum 2016 (WMF 2016)
will present an opportunity for mountain stakeholders to share lessons and
experiences on past activities in sustainable mountain development and to
discuss challenges and opportunities for SMD in the future referring to the
recommendations from the last WMF 2014 and conclusions of on-going
international policy processes including climate change negotiation and new
sustainable development goals.
The WMF 2016 outcomes are expected to
inform the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and guide
interventions in mountain areas at local, national and international levels.
Furthermore, the WMF 2016 will offer an opportunity for mountain countries to
discuss how to effectively implement the decisions from climate change
negotiations and the post-2015 agenda for sustainable mountain development.
