         The Journal of Mountain Science (JMS) publishes papers covering research on natural- and anthropically-induced environmental changes and sustainable development in mountain areas, mainly on mountain environment, mountain ecology, mountain hazards, mountain resources and mountain development.

         The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, adopted in March 2015 by the United Nations, aims at the "substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries" (UNISDR, 2015). Disaster risk reduction involves prevention and mitigation of disaster risk as well as managing residual risk in order to strengthening resilience and achieve sustainable development under the evident climate change scenarios.

         The JMS will publish a special issue devoted to the topic of "Disaster Risk Reduction in Mountain areas". We welcome contributions that explore the experiences on the diverse dimensions of disaster risk reduction in mountain regions undertaken by diverse stakeholders. Themes relevant to this special issue are understanding physical processes of mountain hazards, vulnerability, exposure, integrated research on disaster risk, disaster risk mitigation and management, disaster risk governance, policy making and practices across different time scales and mountain regions of the world, instructive practices or obstacles for implementation , and coherence among post-2015 international frameworks (Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, Sustainable Development Goals, Climate Change Agreement, and others).
