Dear GAINS Network members,
GAINS has received information from Sophia Huyer at Wigsat about an e-mail conference entitled "Integrating Mountain Culture and Natural Resource Management" and would like to encourage Network members to participate.  The conference will take place from August 17-September 14, 2001 and is organized by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD).  The conference will be held in English but supporting documentation in regional languages will be accepted. 
The conference aims to start an ongoing debate on the cost of mountain development and the interventions in mountain natural resource management on mountain cultures (specifically the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region) and how they can be integrated into appropriate policies and practices.  The conference further aims to explore the significance of gender in integrating culture and natural resource management.  If you would like a more detailed description of the topics of discussion and goals of the conference, please e-mail GAINS at [EMAIL PROTECTED]
To join in the discussion, please send an email to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "subscribe mcnrm" in the body of the message.
