Need for Integrated Solutions and Stronger Partnerships – World Mountain Forum Concludes
Almost one billion people live in mountain areas, accounting for 13% of the world’s population. Mountainous regions are particularly sensitive to the effects of global and climate change, jeopardising many of the critical goods and services they provide – an area that covers 22 percent of the world’s land surface, and provides 60 to 80 percent of the Earth’s fresh water. The University of Central Asia (UCA) and the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic co-organised the fourth World Mountain Forum (WMF 2018), with support from the Government of Switzerland and the Aga Khan Foundation United Kingdom, from October 23-26 2018 in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
