The Adaptation at Altitude (AaA) programme has created a new online space on climate change adaptation in mountains that actors working on this topic can use to share their findings, learn from others, discuss challenges and shared issues, and announce events. 

This space is hosted on the climate change adaptation knowledge platform, and is free and open for all to use. It ultimately aims to support a community of practice and open space for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers working at all levels to connect with each other and share and discuss insights from their work. 

You can find the space at

To join this community, all you need to do is to register on, visit this page and click on ‘join‘ (below the introductory text). This will enable you to receive updates on the latest happenings in the community, and to have a user profile showcasing your interest and expertise. 

In order to make this space is as useful as possible to those working on adaptation in mountains, feedback regarding how it could best support you and your colleagues and partners is very welcome.  Please share your comments via  

To share your recent open access articles, reports, case studies, guidance documents, projects, events, etc. you can directly add them to the theme at If you need support to upload your content, please contact Christina Daszkiewicz.  

Knowledge-sharing networks, unite! In the spirit of collaboration, the AaA team are linking up with other relevant networks and platforms. Please get in touch with Julia Barrott to find out more.  

Adaptation solutions for mountains database: The AaA programme is developing a curated database of high-quality, global adaptation solutions for mountains that will be shared through this online space. For more information about the adaptation solutions for mountains database please contact Anna Scolobig

The AaA programme is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and aims to increase the climate change resilience and adaptation capacities of mountain communities and ecosystems through enhancing knowledge and supporting knowledge transfer and exchange on climate adaptation in mountains. As a participating partner in this programme, MRI receives contribution support from SDC for the development of our Flagship Activity, the Global Network on Observations and Information in Mountain Environments (GEO-GNOME).
