In 2018, the University of Central Asia’s (UCA) Mountain Societies Research Institute (MSRI) committed to establish its main office on the UCA campus in Khorog (Tajikistan) in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast. MSRI will be engaging in new research activities in Tajikistan and in northeast Afghanistan, as well as supporting the Earth and Environmental Sciences Programme at UCA. 

In addition, MSRI continued to strengthen ongoing partnerships and research programmes, initiated new projects, conducted training sessions, Summer Schools, and workshops, and hosted the fourth World Mountain Forum in Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan). Two of the major thematic research areas that MSRI engaged in during 2018 were social dynamics and resilience in mountain societies and sustainable food systems. Underlying research themes include impacts of migration, resilience of mountain communities to shocks and stressors, climate change impacts, sustainable water supplies, natural resource management, disaster response, and nutritious agroforestry products.
