Dear MRD Regional Editors,

We are pleased to announce the following call for papers -- which is also going to
Mountain Forum and the Mountain Research Initiative for broad circulation. May I
appeal to you to forward this message to potential authors who could be encouraged
to deliver high-quality manuscripts for the Development or Research sections?

MRD call for papers on "Resource Efficiency" (deadline for submission of articles:
15 October 2010):

Mountain Research and Development (MRD) is planning an issue focusing on "Resource
Efficiency". Download the call for papers for further details at<>. With this issue, MRD aims at
contributing novel research insights and validated development experiences to the 10
Year Framework Program of the Marrakech Process that will be launched in February
2011. We assume that experiences of, and insights into, efficient use of natural
resources in mountain areas will benefit an audience beyond the "mountain research
and development communities".

Best regards,
