International Mountain Day focuses on conflict resolution

Nov 04, 2004
December 11 is to be celebrated worldwide as International Mountain Day. This year the main focus of interest is the overriding significance of peace for sustainable development.
Indeed mountain regions are today often among the poorest, least developed regions of the world, and suffer disproportionately often from conflicts and violent confrontations. Any improvement in living conditions of mountain populations is not possible without progress in conflict management and resolution.
