CIRMOUNT is responsive to the needs and challenges of western society imposed by climate changes on mountain ecosystems. Two of CIRMOUNT's goals relate to resource policy and management:

  • Communicate science among diverse disciplines and provide sound support for effective land-use planning management (communication decision-support);
  • Promote development of longterm, policy-relevant mountain climate and ecosystem databases (research, observation, communication, and decision- support)

CIRMOUNT coordinates activities to inform, demonstrate, and encourage the inclusion of climate-change science in land-use planning and policy, and in conservation and resource-management efforts.
