The Summit seeks to achieve the following outcomes:
- Mobilize public and private sector leaders to leverage funding in support of relevant initiatives, including making commitments for funding through agreed next steps.
- Promote collaboration for new and ongoing initiatives, by developing a roadmap for enhancing and strengthening the provision of hydro-meteorological, climate, and prediction services for mountain regions, for optimizing and enhancing cryosphere and high mountain observations, and advancing the scientific research agenda to address emerging gaps.
- Leverage the knowledge, expertise, and influence of relevant stakeholders for coordinating the upscaling of end-to-end services and increasing interagency engagement, including identifying barriers and proposing enabling actions.
- Ensure that existing funding mechanisms such as The World Bank, Green Climate Fund, Global Environmental facility, and the Adaptation Funds, identify high mountains as priority areas for investments and projects.
