This month we've been in Quito, Ecuador, where MRI Executive Director Carolina Adler participated in the second lead author meeting for the IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC). An intense few days of fruitful discussion concluded with an outreach event at which Dr. Adler spoke for mountains in a presentation to the media and wider public - more on that below.

And the mountain research community has been busy too! Read on to discover the latest stories, publications, and opportunities from across the global network.
