Abstract

Objectives: To conserve and promote environmentally sound mountain agriculture (art. 1). Summary of provisions: This Protocol has been adopted in the framework of the Alpine Convention (1991). Parties agree to, inter alia, integrate mountain agriculture into other policies (art. 2), develop it in a sustainable way with a view to reducing abandonment of mountain zones (art. 3), and include farmers and territorial communities in the process of decision-making relating to mountain agriculture (art. 4 and 5). Transborder co-operation, international consultation and exchange of information are to be developed in the elaboration of agricultural policies and in their implementation (art. 6). Chapter II of the Protocol provides for extensive measures relating to, inter alia, rural land planning (art. 8), breeding and diversity of genetic heritage (art. 10), control of production (art. 12), and complementarity between agriculture and forest economy (art 13). Chapter III deals with research, training and information, and chapter IV with implementation and assessment of provisions. Parties undertake to report on the implementation of the Protocol to the Alpine Conference, through the Standing Committee, established under the Alpine Convention.
