The Role of Culture in Transformation Towards Sustainable Development in Mountains

New Issue of Mountain Research and Development is out.


Culture is fundamentally relevant for sustainable development. This focus issue shows how mountain communities draw on their cultural heritage and integrate new knowledge to shape their own innovative and locally-based development pathways. It also explores ways of integrating culture into development practice and policy. Studies focus on mountain communities in Chile, Italy, Russia, Ecuador, Georgia, Nepal, and China.

The issue is available online and open access.
