    Description

    I represent a nascent effort in western North America that is committed to improving integration of climate-related research and its societal implications. We go under the name of CIRMOUNT, that is, Consortium for Integrated Climate-Related Research in Western North American Mountains. In a sense, CIRMOUNT is a North American answer (in the affirmative) to Thomas Schaaf’s (UNESCO/MAB) question of whether the global mountain change community represented at Entlebuch wants to continue the Mountain Research Initiative, MRI-UNESCO Mountain Biosphere Reserve (MBR) commitment. The answer is a resounding ‘Yes’, given that CIRMOUNT is one feasible response from developed countries, which – unlike other network nations here – cannot easily fold into the GEF (Global Environment Facility) proposal.
