The following websites and links contain information from past CIRMOUNT-sponsored meetings and from special sessions. Of particular interest are downloadable PDF copies of oral presentations (from PowerPoint shows) and posters. In addition, the CIRMOUNT Resource Policy and Management page has archives of workshops specific to climate change and resource management.
