Climate-Smart Solutions for Tropical Mountain Environments: Research, Innovation and Policy for Building Inclusive and Resilient Societies

4th MWECAU International Conference Announcement 25 – 29 July, 2022

Climate-Smart Solutions for Tropical Mountain Environments: Research, Innovation and Policy for Building Inclusive and Resilient Societies

Tropical mountains are crucial in building resilient landscapes. Their favourable conditions in terms of climate and soil translate into a high need for provisioning ecosystem services, while they are also crucial in regulating downstream processes such as clean water supply. Mountainous environments in the tropics are also most vulnerable to land degradation and climate change, yet remain understudied. Research and innovation into climate-smart and inclusive solutions for the world’s tropical mountains will therefore be crucial for securing livelihoods and ecosystem services.
