Landscape approaches for mountain community sustainable development in a time of climate change: Policy Consultation and South-South Exchange Workshop and INMIP Mountain Community Exchange Walking Workshop
National Farmers' Participatory Breeding and Seed-Sharing Network, China
Two events were held in Yunnan Province, China, between 19-23 May 2016, to explore landscape approaches for sustainable development of mountain communities. The first was a Policy Consultation and South-South Exchange Workshop in Lijiang, 19-20 May, to explore and promote community-led landscape approaches as critical tools for sustainable development, climate adaptation and poverty alleviation. The second was the INMIP (International Network of Mountain Indigenous Peoples) Mountain Community Exchange Walking Workshop in Stone Village, 19-23 May.
This report from the Farmers' Seed Network in China provides a summary of the discussions that took place across both events.
