I International Conference on Research for Sustainable Development in Mountain Regions

5 to 7 October, 2016
Teatro Municipal de Bragança / Campus Sta. Apolónia, Bragança, Portugal

 

The I International Conference on Research for Sustainable Development in Mountain Regions is a scientific event for sharing and discussing methods, tools, results, applications, trends and challenges in research in mountain systems.

It will be organized for the first time in Bragança under the theme “Ecosystem services and sustainable development”. The conference will address the actual state of mountain science and how its latest conceptual and practical developments can support sustainable development. Ecosystem services, given the relevance of the approach and applications, will play a central role in the conference. We expect to produce formal declarations concerning the state of knowledge on mountains from a problem-solving perspective at several geographic scales, including the community of Portuguese-speaking countries. The conference will also be stage for the formal establishment of research networks that are currently under development. One such initiative is the LuMont – Lusophony Mountain Research Network launched recently with the support of MRI.
