As you may know, the theme of the International
Mountain Day 2006, which falls on December 11 this
year, is "Managing Mountain Biodiversity for Better
Lives."

This is an opportunity for us all to raise awareness
about the need to manage mountain biodiversity in a
sustainable manner, to highlight promising models, and
to build partnerships at all levels to promote
biodiversity management that will reduce poverty,
improve livelihoods, and protect mountain environments
for us all.

Keeping the above in mind, we the Mountain Forum
bulletin team have decided that the theme of the next
issue of the Mountain Forum Bulletin should likewise
be "Managing Mountain Biodiversity for Better Lives".

We are, therefore, looking for:

1) Feature article(s) on any of the following:

- subjects related directly to mountain biodiversity;
- links between land, flora and fauna, natural
resources, human beings;
- management of mountain biodiversity in protected
areas;
- sustainable development and poverty alleviation in
mountain environments;
- value of traditional and sustainable land use
practices contributed by indigenous and local
communities in preserving mountain biodiversity;
- successful collaboration between mountain dwellers
and communities living in areas adjacent to mountains;
- the UN Convention on Biodiversity (UN CBD) (decision
VII/27 on mountain biological diversity);
(1000 - 1500 words)

2) Updates on your organisation, projects, or
initiatives for the 'Member Initiative" section
(600-800 words). If the initiative is linked to the
theme of the International Mountain Day 2006, we would
definitely like to hear from you!

3) Upcoming events (till July 2007!)

4) Review of a book on a topic related to "management
of mountain biodiversity“. (400 words, including a
digital image of the front cover of the book reviewed)

The deadline for submitting your contribution(s) is no
later than November 30, 2006.

Please send your contributions to:
bulletin@mtnforum.org

We look forward to sharing the next issue of the
Mountain Forum Bulletin with you.
