Mountain Laws and Peoples: Moving Towards Sustainable Development and Recognition of Community-Based Property Rights. A General Overview of Mountain Laws and Policies with Insights from the Mountain Forum s Electronic Conference on Mountain Policy an
In July 2000, the FAO announced that the year 2002 will be the International Year of the Mountain. Mountains are not just different ecosystems because they are more vertical than others, they are fragile ecosystems which are globally important as the world s water towers, repositories of biological diversity, destinations for recreation and tourism and a home to about one-tenth of humankind. The Mountain Forum, an international web-based network on mountain related issues, is not waiting till 2002 but is operating several electronic forums on the Internet on mountain related issues. Anyone with an interest in these issues is invited to participate. The major outcomes are compiled and made available on Internet and on paper too. Issues include mountain people, forests and trees, sacred mountains and environmental management, sustainable mountain tourism and mountain laws and peoples. All are brief and clearly written reports, offering a broad range of contributions and illustrations from various parts of the world.
