Healthy social–ecological systems in mountains are essential for reducing disaster risk and achieving sustainable development globally. This focus issue illuminates the dynamic and complex interconnections between hazards, underlying vulnerabilities, integrated disaster risk management, and resulting impacts in mountains. Its articles present insights from the Himalayas, the Andes, Iceland, Japan, and the volcanic island of Saint Vincent. Through a range of approaches, concepts, and case studies, they chart ways of reducing disaster risk and fostering partnerships among the great variety of stakeholders involved.

The issue is available online and open access:
