Systematic observation of the social-ecological dimensions of mountain areas can help us understand dynamics and trends affecting mountain communities and ecosystems. This MRD Talk brought together researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to explore how best to set up monitoring systems and share the information generated to enable effective policies and action for sustainable futures in mountains. Panelists shared insights from research in the Andes, regional monitoring systems in the European Alps and the Himalayas, and a global observation initiative. The ensuing discussion highlighted the need for more socioeconomic monitoring, linkage across topics and scales, collaboration among diverse stakeholders, inclusion of diverse knowledges, open science, data accessibility, and tailored communication. More key insights and a recording of the event are now available online.
MRD Talks are organized jointly by Mountain Research and Development (MRD) and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) as part of the PRIMA project funded by Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC).
