About the Access Commission
We understand that access rights must be balanced by responsibility and care for the mountain landscape, bio- and geo-diversity and the cultures and people of the mountains.
This is why the Access Commission works with international associations, and supports our member federations and others to facilitate access to areas while being sensitive to environmental, social, legal and other considerations.
The commission will:
- Promote the freedom to practice mountaineering and climbing in a responsible manner as a fundamental human right.
- Provide advice, with supporting documentation, on the relationship between mountaineering and climbing and environmental, social and legal considerations.
- Encourage best practice in harmonising access with these considerations, and support member federations in challenging inappropriate restrictions.
- Liaise with international organisations on access and conservation issues and provide assistance, when requested, to member federations on such issues within their own countries.
- Foster research in support of the commissions aims.
- Provide regular articles on important issues to the UIAA Journal and other publications concerned with mountaineering and climbing issues.
- Be present and represented at major international conference where access and conservation issues are discussed.
