This issue of Mountain Research and Development, guest edited by Martin Price and MRI Chair Jörg Balsiger, is looking for contributions that address the title question by presenting systematically validated experiences, integrated analyses, and well-referenced reflections and suggestions regarding thematic issues, pedagogic concepts and methods, formal and informal practices, institutional setups, and policy frameworks.

Full papers are due by 31 March 2020.

This Special Issue of Land, guest edited by MRI SLC member Rob Marchant, aims to provide practitioners and policymakers with key information on the dynamics and changes in threatened ecosystems in order to help design and implement appropriate management strategies for sustainable mountain futures. Submission deadline is 30 December 2020. 

A Special Issue of the MDPI open access journal Land on 'Mountains Under Pressure' is inviting manuscript submissions. 

Montane forests and alpine ecosystems are rich in biodiversity and endemism, as well as being a large global carbon store. They are highly threatened by climate change, population growth, and land use change. Mountains provide an ideal natural laboratory to investigate the evolution of social–ecological systems, and to assess the current challenges and opportunities that this past evolution has created.

This special issue of the MDPI journal Atmosphere invites observation, proxy reconstruction, and projection-based analytical and modelling studies and their reviews that advance our knowledge about the past, present, and future of the Himalayan climates, their shifts, and their subsequent impacts on all dimensions of life at local and regional scales. Manuscript submission deadline is 31 October 2020.

Extending from the eastern Tibetan Himalaya to the Hindu Kush and Karakoram ranges in the northwest, the 2400-kilometer long Himalayan arc ensures the food-water-energy security, sustainable development, and socio-economic well-being of billions of downstream inhabitants. Earth’s highest mountain range modulates distinct large-scale atmospheric modes, affects all scopes of boundary layer dynamics, and subsequently features an enormous topoclimatic heterogeneity, rarely covered by sparse observational record.
