The Government of Uganda, through its Ministry of Water and Environment (MoWE) jointly with Albertine Rift Conservation Society (ARCOS) and in collaboration with partners in a global programme “Sustainable Mountain Development for Global Change (SMD4GC)” financially and technically supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC)”, are calling for everyone interested in sustainable mountain development (SMD) to start registering for the third World Mountain Forum 2016. The Forum will be held in Mbale, Uganda on 17-19 October 2016 with the overall theme: “Mountains for Our Future”.

The Forum brings together mountain stakeholders from around the globe, and provides a platform for exchange, promotion of collaborative action and fostering political dialogue among different levels of society. The overall goal of the World Mountain Forum is to engage dialogue with articulated, concrete actions and concerted efforts to address the plight of mountain ecosystems towards Sustainable Mountain Development. The Forum will cover four themes, namely;

• Mountains and Climate Change;
• Mountain Communities and Livelihoods;
• Mountain Ecosystem Services; and
• Sustainable Mountain Agriculture.

Register at this link if you are interested to contribute to sustainable mountain development. The registration fee is USD50 and you will confirm your payment of the fee upon registering on the website. There is limited funding/sponsorship for especially active contributors and participants from developing countries. Self-funded participants are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Mountain Partnership General Assembly will take place in the same venue right after the WMF, on 21-22 October 2016. This is a closed event restricted to the Mountain Partnership members.
