This side event “Towards a Road to Sustainable and Resilient Recovery in Mountains” will take place during the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development 2021, and aims to advocate for policies that support food security, poverty reduction and sustainable food systems in mountains, including those associated with family farming and traditional crops and diets.
Organized by the Permanent Mission of the Kyrgyz Republic to the UN, with the support of the Mountain Partnership Secretariat, the event also aims to:
- launch and spotlight examples of the FAO publication “Mountain farming systems – seeds for the future” on agroecology in mountains for more resilient agricultural and food systems;
- share and build upon initiatives related to innovation and the diversification of mountain livelihoods to safeguard decent work opportunities, particularly for women and youth in rural areas; and
- explore how to promote innovative partnerships and collaboration with the private sector to increase funds for achieving the SDGs and addressing the COVID-19 crisis and aftermath in mountains.
