Background
The United Nations General Assembly has designated 2022 as the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development. The Resolution, adopted by the General Assembly on December 16, 2021, recognizes that mountain regions, especially in developing countries, are experiencing numerous difficulties – such as growing poverty, food insecurity, environmental degradation, increased exposure to the risk of disasters and limited access to basic services.

Kyrgyzstan presented the draft resolution. The Kyrgyz Republic will also promote an initiative for the adoption of a five-year action plan for the development of mountain regions at the United Nations.

The year 2022 also marks the 20th anniversary of the first International Year devoted to mountains (International Year of Mountains 2002) as well as the 20th anniversary of the Mountain Partnership.
