This seminal declaration was adopted by the Future of Mountain Sports Conference, Innsbruck, 6 – 8 September, 2002. The UIAA has been a close promoter of the declaration since its publication and is currently working on an additional annex to reflect some of the developments in climbing and mountaineering over the past twenty years. Please note that the UIAA Mountaineering Commission is working on a revision of the Tyrol Declaration which will be published in due course.
