Mountain Research and Development Volume 31, Issue 3

Three papers in the newest issue of MRD focus on water resources and water management issues in the Indus Basin—one of the largest watersheds in the world, with well over 200 million people in the lower basin depending on the water from headwaters shared by China, India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Further papers focus on other natural resources in mountains around the world, on their dynamics, on the impact of human use and human needs of these resources, and on conservation issues.
