The FEDME Scientific Mountain Advisory Board
The Scientific Mountain Advisory Board (CACM) was set up in 2003, when the International Year of Mountains came to a close at the end of 2002. It is made up of a team of experts specialising in various issues relating to the environment, sports and other disciplines associated with mountains and rural areas.
It acts as an advisory board to FEDME and the regional federations by proposing technical and scientific criteria to deal with one of the challenges currently facing the mountaineering world today: the ability to go on having free access to mountains, while endeavouring to preserve their own playground and culture, through adherence to attitudes and values that are typical and traditional of this community.
The Board meets regularly, organizes bi-annual conferences on science and mountaineering, responds to regulatory proposals from ministries and conducts studies on subjects linked to FEDME.
The Board’s main objectives are as follows:
- To advise the clubs and federations on all aspects linking conservation of mountain regions with the practice of mountain sports.
- To advise the Nature Access Committee whenever an expert opinion is called for with respect to the regulations, plans and technical studies affecting conservation of mountain regions and the sustainable development of mountain sports.
- To offer their support to the Nature Access Technical Committee in the implementation of its duties as “mountain watchdog”, through the detection and analysis of any problems that might arise in the mountains and affect mountaineering.
