Alpine Convention - observer

Mission

The Alpine Conference is the political decision-making body of the Alpine Convention and consists of the Ministers of the Contracting Parties. Meetings of the Conference are normally held every two years in the Member State holding the Presidency of the Convention (one state holds the presidency for two years).

The Permanent Committee is the executive body of the Alpine Conference and ensures that the Convention’s decisions, principles and aims are out into practice. The Permanent Committee meets generally twice a year.

The Permanent Secretariat, established in 2003 with its main office in Innsbruck and a branch office in Bolzano/Bozen, provides support to the decision-making organs of the Convention, favors the exchange of experience and knowledge about the Alps and is in charge of public relations for the Alpine Convention.
