About the Mountain Protection Commission

Since it was founded in 1969, the Mountain Protection Commission has worked to protect the mountains – one of the last natural, unspoilt and free spaces on earth. The goal is to ensure that the mountains will still be there to enjoy for future generations of mountaineers and mountain people.

The goal is to ensure that the mountains will still be there to enjoy for future generations of mountaineers and mountain people. The commission educates, provides practical advice and promotes eco friendly behaviour among everyone who visits the mountains.

It’s most recent initiative is the UIAA Mountain Protection Award, and together with other international conservation organisations and networks the commission continues to promote the sustainable development of mountain areas. UIAA member organisations can seek help to fight destructive developments in their countries.
