Programs: The Mountain Institute’s work revolves around three central themes: economic development in the mountains, conservation of mountain environments, and support for mountain cultures. Since our founding, we have listened to the people who know mountains best — those who live in mountains — and we help identify and implement solutions to the challenges that threaten their livelihoods and the health of their environments. Working closely with a wide variety of development, government, academic, and technical partners, our programs now reach more than a quarter of a million people a year, not including visitors to the national parks that we helped establish in Nepal, China, and Peru. We have undertaken additional programs in India and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.
