The International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation (the UIAA, www.theuiaa.org) has set up since 2013 the Mountain Protection Award (http://www.mountainprotection.theuiaa.org/), which focuses on the promotion of responsible mountain tourism and the reward of outstanding initiatives from mountain areas stakeholders (associations and tourism agencies). It helps develop and support community-based tourism that simultaneously contributes to the conservation of ecosystems and sustainable livelihoods for local people.

The project is an international recognition which gives the winner not only a cash grant but also the possibility to present his activities at the UIAA and UIAA partners' events. It also functions as a platform, where initiatives are posted, can attract direct donations and are promoted though our 80 national federations and their 2.5 million members.
