In this open issue, two articles focus on the Indian Himalayas, assessing the risk of glacial lake outburst floods and investigating risk knowledge among formal and informal urban development actors. Another article describes indigenous-driven sustainability initiatives in the Tropical Andes of Ecuador, and one examines how a wetland park on the Yunnan–Guizhou Plateau, China, affects waterbird diversity. A review article systematically maps and analyzes English-language academic peer-reviewed work on climate change adaptation in European mountain systems.

The issue is available online and open access:

Reminder: Mountain Research and Development’s call for papers on addressing challenges of hazards, risks, and disaster management in mountain regions is still open. The journal is looking for trans- and interdisciplinary contributions that help understand the links between hazards, vulnerabilities, disaster management, and diverse dimensions of development, adaptation, and global change. Insights into integrative approaches to improving disaster management across the entire cycle from prevention to recovery are also highly welcome. Full papers are due by 1 September 2021. https://bit.ly/2T1SXfF
