Mountain Research and Development, Vol 35, No 1, available online and open access
In 2015, with Future Earth and SDG activities, sustainability ranks high on the research and development agendas. Both international efforts are reflected in the orientation of MRD. Papers in this Open Issue explore how Indian farmers’ engagement in a pro-poor value chain can improve their benefits; how Peruvian periurban farmers’ preferences regarding urbanization can be captured; how European intergenerational practices can help in protected area management; and how a low-cost methodology to create digital elevation models can help remote Andean mountain areas. Further papers analyze French and Italian mountain family farms’ adaptation to socioeconomic dynamics and changing national agricultural and mountain policies; the response of alpine forest communities to climate variability in Nepal; and the impact of N and P fertilizer on degraded grasslands in Tibet.
