New working group on Mountain Resilience

with No Comments

I am co-leading a new working group on mountain resilience and systemic innovation, hosted by the Mountain Research Initiative.

The newly-formed Mountain Resilience Working Group originated following an MRI-funded synthesis workshop titled ’Towards a Mountain Resilience Report: Regenerating Mountain Systems by Systemic Innovation’ last September 2019, whose aim was to design and develop a ‘Mountain Resilience Report’ (MRR) for mountain regions.

This new working group, led by Tobias Luthe (ETHZ / Monviso Institute, Switzerland) and co-lead by Romano Wyss, will collect existing knowledge and build new capacity in mountain resilience, working toward a dynamic assessment of the evolving state of mountain social-ecological system resilience to interconnected environmental changes.

In addition to the Mountain Resilience Report, the working group’s aims include the production of a review paper for the IPCC AR6 on assessing and implementing innovative capacities as part of resilience in mountain regions (to be submitted by June 2020), and the development of an interactive, open platform to share knowledge and experience between actors in mountain regions around the world.
