The Mountain Institute

The Mountain Institute

Washington D.C., USA

Although awareness of the global importance of mountains is growing, mountain issues still tend to be diminished because, to the average person, mountains seem deceptively strong. They are not; they are extremely vulnerable. Mountain ecosystems are some of the first in the world to experience the effects of climate change. One of the most conspicuous changes has been the declining availability of water, which, among other problems, inhibits food and electricity production. The mountain institute empowers communities that call mountains home in Asia, North America, and South America.
