Center for Global Mountain Safeguard Research - Sustainable governance and community resilience

Sustainable governance and community resilience

Sustainable governance and community resilience in mountain regions and their connected lowlands

  • English

GLOMOS’s research addresses mountain challenges across multiple scales: international, regional and local. By working with stakeholders and decision-makers across governance scales, GLOMOS builds towards effective and sustainable governance that leaves no one behind. Applied research is focused on capacity building at local levels in order to enhance community resilience of mountain communities in the face of dynamic risks and natural hazards.

Aiming at sustainable governance and community resilience, research topics take into consideration glocal pressures and changes (including the most recent covid-19 pandemic) in relation to: - migration and mobility patterns in highland-lowland contexts - transboundary risks - coping mechanisms of most vulnerable groups

Research on impacts of Sars-CoV-2 in rural mountain communities worldwide

Together with partners of the global network, and based on their comprehensive local expertise, GLOMOS researchers have initiated investigations concerning the impacts of COVID-19 in different mountain regions worldwide. Interviews with affected communities in Peru, Ecuador, South Africa, and Kurdistan, have provided valuable insight into mountain-specific challenges posed by the pandemic. Results are envisaged for publication in early 2021.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
