We would like to invite you to participate in a short online survey on governance in mountain environments. We are interested in gaining understanding of the major challenges for governance, and what is being done to foster sustainability in the world’s mountains. We are particularly interested in gaining insights from in-depth case studies that have paid attention to governance as part of the data collection process. Given your experience of working in mountain environments, your participation would be extremely valuable – and greatly appreciated! 
 The survey will take around 20 minutes. If you wish to answer the survey in two or more sittings, you can set up an individual survey ID to return to and finish the survey when convenient.   The email addresses of the respondents will not be saved unless the respondents indicate their wish to receive follow-up information on the findings of this survey. The survey is available in English, Spanish, French, Mandarin (Chinese), and Russian. You can select your preferred language in the top right-hand corner of the survey pages.
 Should you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch by replying to this email (mri@mountainresearchinitiative.org).
We encourage you to share this invitation widely with your colleagues who also work in mountain environments.
