Global Change and Mountain Regions: the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) Coordination Office is a scientific infrastructure project that promotes and coordinates research on global change in mountain regions (Becker and Bugmann 2001). MRI organizes its work around four "I's" - initiation, implementation, integration, and information. Initiation focuses on the formation of networks of researchers so that they can better develop interdisciplinary research activities and proposals. Implementation involves support to these networks, the maintenance of the profile of global change in mountain regions, and specific projects involves monitoring, processes studies or modeling. Integration focuses on the synthesis of research results and the publication of new knowledge. Information means the translation of research results into guidance useful for policy makers and practitioners, and communications within the mountain research community itself During the 2013-2016 period, the MRI will do the following under these four headings:•Initiationoconduct nine Key Contacts workshops,ocollaborate with regional research coordinators in Latin America and Africa,oexpand cooperation with other important regional entities such as ICIMOD, the University of Central Asia, CIRMOUNT, and the Chinese Academy of Science.osupport new thematic networks on treeline ecosystems, alpine lakes and coupled social-ecological mountain systems.ocollaborate with Austrian Academy of Science on the Swiss-Austrian Alliance for Mountain Research.•Implementationocontinue participation in Mountain Partnership, World Mountain Forum and Future Earth,oconvene the MRI Global Commission for strategic oversight and implementation of the global change research agenda for mountains,oconduct a global fair and workshop long-term observing systems of mountain social-ecological systems, olaunch a campaign to assess accelerated global warming at high elevations,ocoordinate a global study of agency and governance in mountain regions,•Integration oconduct three Synthesis Workshops on significant topics,osupport and execute Perth 2015, the major world conference on global change in mountains, osynthesize the results of Perth 2015,•Informationopromote a major global assessment of the state of mountain regions with respect to sustainable development, andoenhance its communication channels and products to support all program activities.The total budget of MRI for all activities is 1'561'592.20 chf. Given external funding of 450'657.20 chf, the request of MRI to SNF is for 1'110'935 chf.
