UNEP in collaboration with the Mountain Research Initiative, the Global Mountain Biodiversity Assessment, and GRID-Arendal has produced an information panel on the important role mountains play in the context of the Convention on Biological Diversity's Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

The panel highlights the unique biodiversity mountain regions host, sheds light on threats to mountain biodiversity, and presents policy recommendations suggesting how to address the protection of mountain biodiversity in the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.

For additional information, please access the full policy brief on mountains.

The panel is part of a larger physical exhibition about the protection of endangered mountain species and increasing the resilience of wildlife and local communities towards climatic changes (Vanishing Treasures Programme).
