Mountain Agriculture and Mountain Forestry Working Group

Chair: Italy

The Mountain Agriculture and Mountain Forestry Working Group was established by the XV Alpine Conference in 2019. This Working Group is in line with priority 4 “Greening the Economy” and priority 2 “Taking Action on Climate Change” of the Multi-Annual Work Programme 2017-2022.  

This Working Group has contributed to the concrete operationalisation of the Alpine Climate Target System 2050 of the Alpine Convention, focusing on climate-friendly mountain agriculture, sustainable management of mountain forests, as well as defining new connections and interaction between sustainable mountain agriculture, sustainable management of mountain forests, tourism and biodiversity in an Alpine context, and developing sustainable urban-rural relationships.

The current mandate until the XVII Alpine Conference focuses on promoting climate-friendly agriculture as defined by the Alpine Climate Board (ACB), developing organic agriculture scenarios for the Alpine region. The Working Group also aims to analyse and strengthen the sustainable value chains in forestry and farming sectors by involving the relevant actors. A focus will also be on linkages between mountain farming and forestry and the urban centres.
