EAAP Mountain Livestock Farming Working Group (MLF), FAO-CIHEAM Mountain Pastures Sub-Network (MP) and University of Ljubljana are promoting a joint meeting focused on the topic of the mountains in the function of agroecosystems for people.

The meeting will be held in Bled, Slovenia. It will last three days, providing a forum for scientific and technical exchanges and a one-day field trip. The scientific sessions will be structured on five topics with a concluding session.

  1. Farming systems and global change
  2. Precision mountain farming and smart agriculture
  3. Product quality and value chains
  4. Management options for ecosystem services
