GLOCHAMOST (Global and Climate Change in Mountain Sites - Coping Strategies for Mountain Biosphere Reserves) 

GLOCHAMOST is the follow-up initiative of UNESCO-MAB to the GLOCHAMORE Project. Its aim is to implement selected key research areas of the GLOCHAMORE Research Strategy to develop adaptation strategies for mountain biosphere reserves in the context of global and climate change. The following 5 key research areas provide a framework for research and knowledge sharing on the impacts of global/climate change on mountain biosphere reserves:  

  • Climate: Climate change including the frequency of extreme events (item 3.1 of the GLOCHAMORE Research Strategy)
  • Biodiversity: Key fauna and flora (item 6e of the Research Strategy)
  • Water: Water quantity (item 4a of the Research Strategy)
  • Land Use Change: Understanding the origins and impacts of land use (item 2b of Research Strategy)
  • Mountain Economies: Employment and income (item 9a of the Research Strategy)
