In this open issue, a MountainDevelopment paper presents effective ways of supporting girls’ education in rural Nepal.
Papers in the MountainResearch section provide a characterization of forest fires on the slopes of Mount Kenya to help improve fire management; show how commercial medicinal plant collection is transforming high-altitude livelihoods in Nepal and offers a way out of poverty; explore the critical role of forest use practices in landscape hydrology in Nepal’s Mid-hills; and examine regional variations in vegetation patterns on landslides in the snowy mountains of central Japan.
Two MountainAgenda papers propose a multiscale transdisciplinary framework for advancing the sustainability agenda of mountain agricultural systems in the Hindu Kush Himalaya and globally, as well as a strategy for integrated monitoring of biodiversity and ecosystem services in high mountain ecosystems such as Colombia’s tropical Andes.
The issue is available online and open access:
