GEO Mountains is pleased to report on the outcomes achieved by the projects focused on enhancing mountain data and information that were funded through our Small Grants Programme 2023. 

The National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) of Mexico is offering a series of QGIS courses at various levels and topics starting in the second half of 2024.

The African Mountain Research Foundation (AMRF) is UK-based charity established in 2022 with the ambitious objective of helping to safeguard southern Africa’s fragile, neglected, and vitally important mountain systems. 

On 20-22 February 2024, the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI), GEO Mountains, the Consorcio para el Desarrollo Sostenible de la Ecorregión Andina (CONDESAN), the Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI), Instituto de Hidrología, Meteorología y Estudios Ambientales (IDEAM), AmeriGEO, the Humboldt Institute and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), co-convened a workshop in Bogotá, Colombia.

GEO Mountains' second General Meeting of the year was held on 29 November 2023. This online meeting provided an opportunity to update network members about recent activities and developments, including the outcomes of the recent GEO Week and GEO Ministerial Meeting in Cape Town. Two invited presentations from projects which align closely with GEO Mountains' objectives were given, and time was also reserved for open discussion amongst participants. 

On 6-8 November 2023, the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI), GEO Mountains, and multiple partner organisations including the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), the Himalayan University Consortium (HUC), and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), co-convened a workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The GEO Mountains General Inventory is a free online resource that seeks to provide comprehensive metadata related to open datasets and data portals that may be useful for applications in mountain areas. Following the release of v1 in March 2022, v1.4 is now out!

Smart EcoMountains project is a joint initiative to create a physical and a virtual research infrastructure to enable the compilation of biodiversity and other data in the region.
