Document title

Integrating local voices and visions into the Global Mountain Agenda

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Mountains and their inhabitants have scored a number of political victories in recent years (1992 Rio Earth Summit's Chapter 13 of Agenda 21, UN General assembly's declaration of 2002 as the International Year of Mountains, etc), but this does not mean that either will be better off in the 21st century. Author wants mountain people to be made central to the planning for the future of mountains. He sees mountain-to-mountain exchanges of scientists and indigenous peoples as particularly useful. Discussed is the Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resource Management (SANREM) project involving Ecuadorians Andes, Bukidon mountains of the Philippines, and the southern Appalachians. - (SLD)
