MRI News

This MRI-funded synthesis workshop, held in April, shed light on the flowpaths of glacier meltwater, revealing potential impacts on downstream water supplies, a critical knowledge gap on the water science agenda.

On 28 April 2023 the MRI, GEO Mountains, and iLEAPS hosted a workshop that aimed to enhance the disciplinary and geographical representation in the consultation processes seeking to establish a set of EMCVs.

Between the 18-20 April 2023, the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI), GEO Mountains, the University of Reading, the Central-Asian Regional Glaciological Center under the auspices of UNESCO (CARGC), and the Kazakhstan Institute of Geography and Water Security co-convened a workshop in Almaty, Kazakhstan on the topic of “Mountain Observatories”.  

Reimagining the future of mountain governance is a pressing challenge that the Mountain Governance Working Group (MGWG) of the MRI is actively addressing through research, collaboration, and partnership-building across various mountain ranges worldwide.

The MRI is pleased to offer funding and in-kind support to consortia conducting research on mountains and mountain regions in the context of climate, ecosystems, and health.

MRI Working Groups have exciting updates to report in 2023!

The MRI Working Groups are community-led activities aligned with the MRI’s objectives. They provide platforms for discussion, exchange, and research. The Working Groups are open to the community, and welcome MRI network members to participate in their activities—especially early career researchers! Please contact the Working Group Leads listed below to get involved.

Join us throughout 2023-2024 for a workshop series on mountain observatories and data/information prospects, building on the responses and suggestions shared in an earlier series of virtual workshops held throughout 2020-2022.
