KSLCDI Mentorship Programme of Country Partners to Germany and Neighbouring Alpine Countries


The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) through its Kailash Sacred Landscape Conservation and Development Initiative (KSLCDI) is organizing a Mentorship Programme for its Country Partners to Alpine Transboundary Landscapes of Germany and Austria.

The visit of this Mentorship Programme will take place from 17 to 26 October 2013. The trip is fully sponsored through programme funds of the KSLCDI. 

The key outputs of this mentorship trip are:

  • Learning on the opportunities and challenges of long-term transboundary landscape management;
  • Improved understanding on ‘responsible tourism’ and its integration in transboundary landscape conservation and development;
  • Enhanced understanding of environmental, social, and cultural norms and their implementation under conservation and development focus (e.g., waste management, water and energy conservation);
  • Scoping of a long-term research collaboration with the renowned forestry faculty of Technical University of Munich.
