There is, however, a lack of knowledge of mountain ecosystems. The creation of a global mountain database is therefore vital for launching programmes that contribute to the sustainable development of mountain ecosystems. Objectives.

This book brings together research results from experts from all Balkan countries working on the problems of the mountain regions in Southeastern Europe. The volume focuses on the challenges taking place along the rapid transformation in land use, biodiversity, tourism, nature risk and bio-productivity due to the global changes and particularly.
The Strategic Workshop "Global Change and Sustainable Development in Mountain Regions" was convened at the Congress Hall of Innsbruck, Austria, from AprilThe event attracted more than scientists, experts, practitioners, students, and scholars from 29.
This second edition of the book Sustainable Development of Mountain Regions: Southeastern Europe integrates the scientific results and expertise of the researchers from the countries in Southeastern Europe. The book consists of updated information for the topics observed in first edition and several new chapters with analysis of some problems in the mountain regions of four new for the edition.

There are many institutions that promote sustainable development in mountain regions worldwide working either at the global, regional, national or local level (Kohler et al., ). According to the same report conducted by the University of Bern, Centre for Development and Environment, mountains are important for global sustainable development.
The outcome document of the Rio + 20 Conference, the Future We Want recognizes, through paragraphsboth the benefits, derived from Global change and sustainable development in mountain regions book regions, as essential for sustainable development and the crucial role played by Mountain ecosystems in providing water resources to a large portion of the world's population.
The conference on Global Change and the World's Mountains held in Perth, Scotland, in offered a unique opportunity to analyze the state and progress of mountain research and its contribution to sustainable mountain development, as well as to reflect on required reorientations of research agendas.

An overview of the importance of mountains in sustainable development and their place on the global political agenda.
A global green economy depends on mountain regions and on institutions that support sustainable mountain development • highlights the importance and diversity of appropriate, well-conceived, and effective insti-tutions for promoting sustainable develop-ment in mountain regions.
Examples cover the entire institutional and geographical range from. The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed as the International Year of Mountains with the main objective to increase awareness of the importance of sustainable mountain development.
The World Summit on Sustainable Development included in its Plan of Implementation considerations for the sustainable development of mountain regions. To address these challenges and to position for global sustainable development aftera strengthened global development agenda will have to facilitate transforma-tion in the way goods and services are produced, in the way jobs are created, in global consumption patterns, in the management of natural resources, and in the mechanisms.

The Mountain Green Cover Index (MGCI), which is one of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators, is defined as the measured changes of the green vegetation in mountain areas.
The MGCI has a direct correlation with the health state of mountains, and, as a consequence, their capacity to fulfill ecosystem roles (FAO, ). Description: By developing consistent and comparable regional climate scenarios for mountain regions, with a focus on Mountain Biosphere Reserves (MBRs), the project aimed at the development of a state-of-the art integrated and implementable research strategy to gain a better understanding of the causes and consequences of global change in a selection of 28 UNESCO MBRs around the world.
The key aim of this pilot study was to assess the feasibility of reporting globally on sustainable development in mountains using the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework, which would depend on the availability of mountain-disaggregated data and accurate delineation of mountain regions (Bracher et al ).

J.A. Elliott, in International Encyclopedia of Human Geography, Introduction. The term sustainable development is a well-used one and is probably familiar to many within and beyond academia, certainly in the more developed parts of the world.
It is a term that we come across in arenas ranging from door-step recycling initiatives to media explanations of global security issues. In fact, the global gains in reducing child labour are likely to be reversed for the first time in 20 years. The report also shows that climate change is still occurring much faster than anticipated.
About 40% of the world population depends indirectly on mountain resources for water supply, agriculture, hydroelectricity and biodiversity. Mountains are among the most sensitive ecosystems to climate change and are being affected at a faster rate than other terrestrial habitats.ment into rural development planning and management of mountains.
Inthe 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the Agenda for Sustainable Develop-ment came into force. Though each SDG, particularly those concerning disaster risk reduction and climate change, is relevant to mountain regions, three targets specifically.Figure 2.
