MRD Call for Papers: Food security & sustainable development in mountains
201710 MRDCall

The journal Mountain Research and Development is looking for papers that contribute to a better understanding of food security - a key concern for sustainable development in mountain areas.

Submissions should present validated insights into development solutions for reducing malnutrition and increasing food security for mountain people; analyze food systems in mountains against the background of global trends and the need for conserving ecosystems; or offer agendas for research or policymaking aimed at increasing the sustainability of food systems in mountains.

The journal aims to contribute to a better understanding of the root causes of food insecurity in mountains, and of the role of mountain areas in providing food to the lowlands. Furthermore, MRD aims to provide insights into possible options and pathways towards more sustainable food systems.

Notices of intent are due by 15 November 2017, full papers by 28 February 2018.
