Dates: 26–27 September 3–4 October 2024
Timing: 3 October 10:00 to 4 October 16:30
Location: Innsbruck, Austria
Venue: University of Innsbruck



This workshop is part of the DiverseK working group. It is designed to engage scientists (i.e. ecologists, paleoecologists, and ecosystem modelers), stakeholders, and environmental policymakers to foster sustainable responses to ongoing climate change in mountain regions across the globe.

By bringing together stakeholders and scientists this workshop will enable an integrated assessment and evaluate the ecological, social, and economic consequences of alternative policies for adaptive mountain management. This science-stakeholder interaction will bring expert opinions on policy options and management alternatives and feedback on research results.

The major objective of this workshop is to promote the integration of long-term data (several decades and millennia) into the decision-making process. In particular, the workshop will focus on the long-term impact of climatic factors and socioeconomic drivers on environmental indicators of biodiversity and ecosystem services. The expected outcomes of the workshop is to i) develop a process-based understanding of mountain landscape development over time (past, present, and future) to be shortly turned into a scientific publication and ii) capitalize on the dialogues among scientists, stakeholders, and environmental policymakers to co-create a Policy Brief as an assessment of the climate change adaptation and mitigation potential for a range of future scenarios.


The PAGES funding will be strictly utilized toward early-career scientists and the Global South researchers and can only be allocated to a limited number of participants. Additional funding is also offered for local and regional travels and accommodations for selected participants from the Global North, especially stakeholders and environmental policymakers.
