New issue of MRD Journal is now online


The new issue of the journal Mountain Research and Development (MRD) focuses on the implications of out- and in-migration on the sustainable development of mountains around the world. Papers in this issue explore several topics, including how asylum seekers, amenity migrants and young people are being integrated in mountain villages in Europe; whether “lifestyle migrants” in Chile are promoting sustainability; how structural poverty causes out-migration; and what impacts internal migration is having on landscape patterns in Nepal, among other topics. Further articles discuss vegetation, wildfire observation and hydro-sociology.

The issue is available online and open access:
