We are pleased to announce that the gvSIG Association is a new Mountain Partnership member, with GISMAP as focal point. At this way the gvSIG Association hopes to collaborate in this international alliance, working together with the common objective to achieve sustainable mountain development around the world.
The Mountain Partnership is a United Nations voluntary alliance of partners dedicated to improving the lives of mountain people and protecting mountain environments around the world.
The Mountain Partnership addresses the challenges facing mountain regions by tapping the wealth and diversity of resources, knowledge, information and expertise, from and between its members, in order to stimulate concrete initiatives at all levels that will ensure improved quality of life and environments in the world’s mountain regions.
Currently, 53 governments, 14 intergovernmental organizations and 167 Major Groups (e.g. civil society, NGOs and the private sector) are members.
With this agreement we add our knowledge and experience in free geomatics to the work of a lot of organizations that take part of this alliance already.
