High Summit 2013 

International Conference on Mountains and Climate Change

Lecco, 23-24-25 October 2013

The final report of the UNCSD Conference held in Rio on June 2012 recognizes that benefits deriving from mountains are essential to sustainable development. Mountains are, in fact, a fundamental source of water and energy for a large number of populations and play a key role in the study and understanding of the impact of climate change. For this reason, mountain issues need to be prioritized in development agendas and processes dealing with poverty reduction, food security and climate change.

Depending on these reflections, Politecnico di Milano, in collaboration with CRN, Ev-K2-CNR Committee and Lecco Chamber of Commerce organizes the High Summit Conference 2013.
