A need has been identified to quantify the count and density of human populations living in mountainous areas in a transparent and reproducible fashion.

This project, which involves numerous partners, seeks to address this information gap.

The impacts on the results of employing various alternative population datasets and delineations of mountains will be explored. This effort should help to meet the information needs of global assessments, including those of the IPCC. Furthermore, we hope to develop a GEO Knowledge Package from the project, which will enable the analyses to be repeated in future as new datasets become available.
