A new working paper compiled jointly by the MRI and the Centre for Development and Environment offers an evidence-informed preliminary assessment of a subset of UN Sustainable Development Goal indicators tailored to a sustainable mountain development context.
To achieve sustainable development, mountain communities and ecosystems must overcome challenges and make the most of opportunities that are specific to the mountain context. Monitoring the progress of mountain regions as they work towards sustainable mountain development therefore needs to be contextualized to effectively guide, coordinate, and assess development efforts. To support this process, the MRI is developing an approach for assessing sustainable mountain development using the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) framework.
Working on species range shifts in mountain areas? Submit an abstract or propose a mountain-specific session or workshop.
The Species on the Move Conference invites you to submit an abstract that can contribute to discussions on understanding and responding to climate driven species redistribution. The global redistribution of the planets’ species is widely recognised as a fingerprint of climate change. However, the mechanisms that underpin such range shifts are poorly understood. Additionally, the pervasiveness of range shifts, from poles to the equator, and depths of oceans to tops of mountains, provides a unique opportunity to advance theories of biogeography, evolutionary ecology, and macroecology.
