Mountain Research and Development issue online

Wednesday, 4 May, 2016 - 09:02

When exploring pathways for sustainable development, knowledge about context matters just as much as our understanding of global processes. Papers in Open Issue (Vol 36, No 1) of Mountain Research and Development (MRD) carefully examine the changing social-ecological context and the global factors influencing it. Papers offer insights into sustainability assessment of the built environment in China, a community-based risk screening tool in Nepal, communication of scientific knowledge for awareness raising in Ladakh, natural disturbances in Italian protection forests, the impacts of grazing in the Georgian Caucasus, climatic conditions and vegetation cover in Bhutan, trade-offs in sustainable land management in Tajikistan, and the application of Ostrom’s “design principles” in Kyrgyzstan (pasturelands) and Kenya (water distribution).

The issue is available online and open access:
