Ad hoc Working Group for the Preparation of the Multi-Annual Work Programme (MAP) 2023-2030 (2021-2022)

Chair: Switzerland

The Working Group was in charge of elaborating a new Multi-Annual Work Programme of the Alpine Conference (MAP) to guide the work of the Alpine Convention in the mid-term. Different to the past MAPs, which usually covered six years, thus spanning three Presidencies of the Alpine Convention, this one was drafted for eight years, up to 2030, to align with the Sustainable Development Goals and other international and European processes.

In addition to the Contracting Parties and Observers, the Thematic Working Bodies were also represented in the Working Group. Furthermore, other national, regional, and local stakeholders were involved in the drafting process through a series of workshops, the “roadMAP”.

The MAP 2023-2030 identifies three priority areas:

  1. Conserving and valuing Alpine biodiversity and ecosystems
  2. Taking ambitious climate action
  3. Enabling a good quality of life for the people in the Alps.

Its implementation will be pursued through the activities of all organs of the Alpine Convention, the Contracting Parties, Observer organisations, and stakeholders beyond.
