The Center for Global Mountain Safeguard Research hosts the GLOMOS office in Bolzano and has its counterpart at the UNU-EHS in Bonn.
GLOMOS is a collaborative programme and research alliance between Eurac and the Institute for Environment and Human Security of the United Nations University based in Bonn / Germany.
GLOMOS represents an interface between the international mountain research community and the UN system conducting applied and transdisciplinary research to support livelihoods and sustainable mountain development. Against this background GLOMOS also facilitates a greater recognition of mountain issues within international frameworks and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The goal of GLOMOS is to contribute to the development of resilient mountain communities towards natural and man-made hazards and disaster risks, to protect the wealth of biological and cultural diversity, and to support adaptive solutions and sustainable transformation processes of these highly sensitive social-ecological systems, first and foremost in the Global South.
