Short Description:

Overall goal

The Lucerne World Mountain Conference in october 2011 will discuss regional and global experience in mountain development since Rio 1992. The results of the Conference will produce insights that will feed into initiatives and events such as the UN Secretary General’s High-level Panel on Global Sustainability (GSP), the United Nation Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) Rio 2012, and the CSD biannual cycle 20/21 in 2013 and 2014 where mountains will be one of the five priority themes.

The world’s mountains were put on the global development agenda at the Rio Earth Summit 1992 by introducing Chapter 13 in the Agenda 21. Twenty years later, sustainable mountain development (SMD) matters more than ever, reaching far beyond mountain regions in today’s globalised world. The aims of the Lucerne Conference are thus to:

• take stock of what has been achieved, and what has not, since 1992

• learn what has worked, what has not and why,

• identify current and future challenges and explore how these can be addressed,

• propose a ‘Plan of Action’ that secures renewed political commitment for SMD, and

• identify and discuss the role of different stakeholders in such a ‘Plan of Action’.

ADA will support this conference by financing the participation of representatives from developing countries.

    • BMLFUW - Federal Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water
    • EU - Funds of the European Commission
    • Others - various other donors are listed in ADA’s annual business report.
  • Type of Aid – Aid modalities: classifies transfers from the donor to the first recipient of funds such as budget support, core contributions and pooled programmes and funds to CSOs and multilateral organisations, project-type interventions, experts and other technical assistance, scholarships and student costs in donor countries, debt relief, administrative costs and other in-donor expenditures.
  • Purpose/ sector code: classifies the specific area of the recipient’s economic or social structure, funded by a bilateral contribution.
  • Tied/Untied: Untied aid is defined as loans and grants whose proceeds are fully and freely available to finance procurement from all OECD countries and substantially all developing countries. Transactions are considered tied unless the donor has, at the time of the aid offer, clearly specified a range of countries eligible for procurement which meets the tests for “untied” aid.
