Mountains around the world are the home of millions of people, the source of freshwater and other ecosystem services, as well as the repository of an incredible biodiversity. In recent decades, mountains have been experiencing unprecedented changes due to climate change, land use change, migration, and developmental activities. In this context, an international conference on ‘Mountains in the Changing World’ is organized that aims at providing a forum for scholars, researchers, policymakers, and students to share their research, knowledge and ideas about various issues of mountains. The conference will be held in 1–2 October, 2016, in Kathmandu, Nepal.
This Special Issue of Environments will publish selected full papers presented at the conference, as well as other submitted papers related to the various issues of mountains. Authors interested in submitting their manuscript for this Special Issue should email to Guest Editor, Uttam Babu Shrestha ([email protected]). We will consider manuscripts on the following issues:
