Volume 43, number 1 of the Mountain Research and Development journal is now available online and open access.

Articles in this open issue focus on a new interactive mudflow database for risk reduction in Kazakhstan, the economic benefits of a social innovation in a Swiss Alpine valley, the need to find a common language about empty houses to tackle rural depopulation in Bhutan, the effects of land use on local climate in Ecuador, what it takes to achieve a people-centered energy transition in the Andes and the Hindu Kush Himalaya, ICIMOD’s new strategy and action plan, and the appropriateness of the adjective “alpine” to broadly describe high-elevation ecosystems. The issue closes with an obituary of Pauline Ives, editor of Mountain Research and Development (MRD) during the journal’s first 2 decades.
