Central Asia mountains: sustainable mountain development from Rio 1992 to 2012 and beyond


This report is an illustrated overview of the trends and challenges in sustainable mountain development in Central Asia since 1992. It highlights selected achievements and lessons learned, and identifies opportunities for further progress. It also presents two case studies from Tajikistan addressing the issues of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction in mountain regions. The first is a study on the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience, and the second is a tree-planting project designed to stabilize hazardous mountain slopes.

The report reveals and explains the connections between the mountain environment and the people of the lowlands, and demonstrates the necessity of sustainable mountain development and the opportunities for a green economy.
