Despite major efforts to promote adaptation actions, gaps between policies and local responses persist and limit effective pathways toward more resilient mountain communities. Emilie Dupuits and Graham McDowell will present their findings on these rifts and discuss their recommendations with Kevin Kinusu, Managing Director of Africa Bioenergy Programs Limited, and Nona Budoyan, Head of the Climate Policy Department of the Armenian Ministry of Environment, as well as the audience. The event is an opportunity to jointly reflect on how to make adaptation efforts work better for mountain communities.

The event opens the new MRD Talks series, which is organized jointly by Mountain Research and Development (MRD) and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) as part of the PRIMA project funded by Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC).
