The Global Network on Observations and Information in Mountain Environments (GEO Mountains) has launched a new small grants call for project proposals that explicitly explore mountain monitoring, data, and information. Priority will be given to projects focused on the following mountain regions: Andes, Central Asia, East Africa, the Caucasus, and Hindu Kush Himalaya.

As 2025 is the UN-declared International Year of Glaciers’ Preservation (IYGP2025), we encourage proposals that align with the themes of the IYGP2025 as potential contributions to that observance. We especially welcome proposals that explicitly address key observation gaps, including data and information on the human dimensions of deglaciation and the societal impacts and adaptation needs associated with the cryosphere in a changing climate.

Open webinar presenting the call and providing opportunity for Q&A: 6 May 2024, 14:00 CEST

Deadline for proposals: 3 June 2024, midnight (23:59) CEST
