#MovingMountains: ICIMOD @COP27: HKH2SharmElSheikh

Asks – Our key messages

Harnessing partnerships to address food insecurity
With our engagement at COP27, we are generating interest around two key messages from the HKH region:

  1. Moving mountains: Shifting the understanding of mountain realities from the periphery towards the centre of global climate and environment discourse, and to recognize the HKH as the pulse of the planet – a region that is most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
  2. Mountains of opportunity: Mountains of opportunity is a framework to guide decision makers to invest in common solutions to (a) address transboundary climate risks and (b) deliver climate action at scale and with speed. These investments will put in place the building blocks by 2030 for mountain communities to step into a resilient and carbon-neutral world.
