This issue of MRD focuses on implications of out- and in-migration for sustainable development in mountains. Papers analyze how asylum seekers, amenity migrants, and young people are being integrated in mountain villages in Europe; ask whether lifestyle migrants in Chile are promoting sustainability; describe depopulation and aging in Georgia; explore the impact of the remittance economy on the elderly, show that structural poverty causes outmigration, and illustrate the impact of internal migration on landscape patterns in Nepal; discuss the impact of labor migration on rural livelihoods in Kyrgyzstan; discuss off-farm employment of former pastoralists in Tibet; and analyze the impact on forest cover of resettlement programs in Ethiopia. Further articles are on vegetation, wildfire observation, and hydro-sociology. Read about the journal’s section policies, guidelines and submission procedure at: http://www.mrd-journal.org/.
