The Global Change Research in Mountain Regions meeting was held in Pontresina, Switzerland, from 15-19 April 1998.

Mountain regions worldwide present a set of unique challenges and opportunities for the study of past and future global climatic and environmental change. An exciting new potential IGBP inter-core project on Mountain research is currently taking shape. Several documents highlighting the mountain research agenda have recently been published.

At the Pontresina workshop, a small group of about a dozen scientists, including representatives from IGBP core project communities, gathered to discuss implementation of a mountain workplan.
