Mountain Research and Development Vol 37, No 4

Migration and Sustainable Development in Mountains

This issue of MRD focuses on implications of out- and in-migration for sustainable development in mountains. Papers analyze how asylum seekers, amenity migrants, and young people are being integrated in mountain villages in Europe; ask whether lifestyle migrants in Chile are promoting sustainability; describe depopulation and aging in Georgia; explore the impact of the remittance economy on the elderly, show that structural poverty causes outmigration, and illustrate the impact of internal migration on landscape patterns in Nepal; discuss the impact of labor migration on rural livelihoods in Kyrgyzstan; discuss off-farm employment of former pastoralists in Tibet; and analyze the impact on forest cover of resettlement programs in Ethiopia. Further articles are on vegetation, wildfire observation, and hydro-sociology.

The issue is available online and open access:
