Eurac Research and the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security are organizing a workshop through their new joint program, Global Mountain Safeguard Research (GLOMOS). The workshop, 'Global Mountain Safeguard: Emerging Risks and Future Challenges for Mountain Regions Worldwide,' will take place in Italy this autumn.

The workshop will serve as a platform for communication and exchange on issues surrounding disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation, and emergency response preparedness in mountain regions.

The aim of the workshop is to increase the resilience of mountain communities to natural and man-made hazards and disaster risks, protect the wealth of biological and cultural diversity in mountains, and support sustainable mountain development. Present and future challenges relating to these issues will be discussed, with the event hoping to build bridges between the international academic community and the United Nations system.

Interested researchers from numerous disciplines, government representatives, NGOs, UN agencies, public and private institutions, international networks - such at the Mountain Research Initiative - and organizations related to mountain-specific topics are all invited to attend.
