Welcome from the Chairs

Dear friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the international conference on "Mountains in the Changing World" (MoChWo).

Mountains are a part of global biodiversity repository and play a vital role in maintaining global ecosystems and supporting millions of people. Unfortunately, they are the most vulnerable to rapid environmental change.

The MoChWo conference will be held in Kathmandu later this year (1-2 Oct). It aims to provide a forum for international/national scholars, researchers, policy maker and students with opportunity to share their research findings and knowledge related to various aspects of mountains (see focus areas in conference website). We are sure that this conference can be an effective and insightful for the benefit of people depending on mountains.

This would be a great opportunity for your to share your findings in Kathmandu, which is known for its long history, ancient cultures and civilizations, Hindu and Buddhist temples, architecture & sculptures. Kathmandu hosts seven UNESCO world heritage sites and is also the gateway of many high Himalayas in Nepal.

Please visit conference site at www.conference.kias.org.np.

See you in Kathmandu!

With regards,
