The objective of the symposium was to identify sustainable forest management practices and policies that can address the changing conditions in the Hindukush-Himalaya region and to propose a way to meet the current challenges in the mountain forest sector by addressing conservation and inclusive development simultaneously.

The symposium has been attended by about 250 participants from 15 countries, including ministers and parliamentarians from the Hindukush-Himalaya states. Further informationen is available at:
