CreatorEURAC research; UNEP; Mountain Research
DescriptionThe Carpathian Convention is a framework type convention pursuing a comprehensive policy and cooperating in the protection and sustainable development of the Carpathians. Designed to be an innovative instrument to ensure protection and foster sustainable development of this outstanding region and living environment, the Convention aims to improve the quality of life, to strengthen local economies and communities. It aims as well at providing conservation and restoration of unique, rare and typical natural complexes and objects of recreational and other importance situated in the heart of Europe, preventing them from negative anthropogenic influences through the promotion of joint policies for sustainable development among the seven countries of the region (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro, Slovak Republic and Ukraine). The Convention was signed in 2003, and came into force between 2006 and 2008. In order to support the Convention and its various agreements or protocols, UNEP in cooperation with the seven Carpathian countries has developed the Carpathians Environment Outlook or KEO. The Outlook brings the most accurate and up-to-date science available on the status of the environment in this region and has also helped initialise a "KEO database" developed by the UNEP/GRID-Warsaw Centre.
