21-31 October 2019. Geneva, Switzerland. WMO.
Mountain regions cover about a quarter of the Earth’s land surface and are home to a quarter of the world’s population. They are important sources of freshwater and centres of biological and cultural diversity. Rising global temperatures are causing unprecedented changes and are accompanied by an increased risk of disasters.
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is therefore, convening a High Mountain Summit to foster high-level dialogue and engage decision-makers and local actors to develop a roadmap to science-based, user-driven knowledge and information systems supporting sustainable development and risk reduction in mountain and downstream regions.
Expression of Interest (pre-registration) for attending the Summit will be received until 1 October. For additional information, please contact the Organizing Committee: firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no registration fee for this event.
