Regional institutional arrangements

At the transnational level, a significant number of policies and institutional frameworks exist and are in operation. In East Africa, these arrangements can be used to pursue the agenda for sustainable mountain development. These include, among others, the IGAD, the EAC, the SADC and COMESA. Under these political and economic subregional arrangements, there are institutional frameworks that address a wide range of issues that are relevant to mountain areas. These institutions have a variety of administrative levels particularly the commissions and secretariats, and through these it is possible to address pertinent mountain issues as well as develop and implement programmes of activities to address the challenges facing mountain ecosystems in a changing climate.
