About the Program

This international training program examines the mountain ecosystems in contexts of human development and natural resources, principles of managing natural resources, and governing the resources for sustainable conservation. Depicting on case studies from a wide range of the current natural resources across the globe, the program considers how different social, political, economic and cultural and gender aspects compete for and sustain the natural resources in mountain ecosystems. The program also examines how environmental activists and their interventions conserved parks, energy, water, and land in the face of climate variability based on a gender perspective. The program will consider how the current international and development system elaborates and processes to sustainably manage the available natural resources in mountain landscapes. 

The program aims at equipping researchers, students, practitioners, and young teachers seeking to learn about mountain ecosystems and sustainable development, with practical approaches, knowledge, and skills necessary for meeting the challenges of sustainable use of natural resources globally. This international training program is executed in partnership with various academic and practice-oriented organizations.
