We are excited to invite members of the GEO Mountains community to actively engage in our upcoming activities! As we prepare for our next phase of activities for 2024–2027, we aim to redefine and rejuvenate our Task Groups (TGs), further developing and evolving the groups initiated in 2022.

The GEO Mountains Task Groups are composed of members from our community, which includes anyone registered in the MRI Expert Database. These groups work collaboratively with other members and the GEO Mountains secretariat to achieve specific outputs within defined timelines. Each Task Group undertakes sub-activities and objectives, evolving as their tasks are completed. Members have the flexibility to join one or more TG for either short-term or long-term contributions, depending on their availability and interests in completing specific outputs.

We are in the process of redefining six new Task Groups and welcome your participation:

  1. Inventories: Contribute to the collective effort of enhancing data discoverability by participating in GEO Mountains’ inventories and coverage analyses.
  2. Regional Engagement Activities: Help create knowledge products like syntheses or policy briefs, and support follow-up activities from our Regional Workshops Series, including technical training and capacity building tailored to regional needs.
  3. Global Policy Outreach: Engage in GEO Mountains’ advocacy activities related to International Years, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Conference of the Parties (COPs), and other global policy forums.
  4. Treaties Spatialisation: Join a group focused on improving the understanding of international environmental agreements' coverage across global mountain regions.
  5. Essential Mountain Variables: Identify and help prioritise a set of Essential Variables specific to mountain areas, ensuring the requirements meet mountain-specific needs.
  6. Contributions to Global Assessments: Contribute to assessment-related syntheses products, addressing knowledge needs for initiatives like the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 7th assessment.

These TGs are dynamic and may evolve based on the level of interest and engagement from our members. We are also open to new contributions and propositions for additional Task Groups.

If you are interested in participating or proposing a new Task Group, please fill in the form below. The deadline for submissions is 30 June 2024.

We look forward to your engagement and involvement in shaping the future activities of GEO Mountains!
