Members meet for Fourth Mountain Partnership Global Meeting
Over 100 members are expected for the Fourth Global Meeting of the Mountain Partnership that will take place in Erzurum, Turkey, 17-20 September 2013.
The global meeting will be key to endorsing the new four-year strategy and governance of the Mountain Partnership and to initiate work on its implementation.
It will also provide a unique opportunity for members from across the world a chance to meet, network, present interesting initiatives and promote collaborative action in sustainable mountain development.
In addition to three days of plenary meetings and a Partnership Fair where members from around the world will present their activities, there will be 15 side events co-organized by participants.
The most recent global meeting was held on the sidelines of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development Rio+20 summit in June 2012, following two previous global meetings of members in Cusco, Peru, in 2004 and in Merano, Italy, in 2003.
