Building capacities of mountain regions and their stakeholders to enhance resilience to climate change

Identifying the socio-ecological factors that will shape the future of mountain value chains by 2050

Supporting policy design that enhances the resilience of mountain regions through new or upgraded value chains

Setting up a European community of stakeholders to foster the exchange of knowledge and experiences


MOVING (MOuntain Valorisation through INterconnectedness and Green growth) is a Horizon 2020 project (2020-2024) coordinated by the University of Córdoba, gathering 23 partner organisations. The project will build capacities and co-develop policy frameworks across Europe. It will establish new or upscaled value chains to contribute to the resilience and sustainability of mountain areas to climate change.

Reference Regions

The 23 mountain regions are the selected areas in which the project will roll-out its research activities and actions to engage relevant stakeholders. These regions represent the wide diversity of mountain areas in 16 European and neighbouring countries.
