Abstract
Following the example of its counterpart in the Carpathians (Science for the Carpathians, S4C) as well as at the global level (Glochamore) the Scientific Network for the Caucasus Mountain Region (SNC-mt) developed the Caucasus Regional Research Agenda (C-RRA) 2020-2030. The elaboration process was initiated back in 2015 and went through number of consultation and drafting stages including presentation at the first Caucasus Mountain Forum (CMF) in Tbilisi.The purpose of this activity was to establish a collaborative process for identifying the current state of knowledge in core issue areas related to sustainable mountain development in the Caucasus region, key challenges and opportunities, and priority gaps for scientific research and development. The elaboration of the Caucasus Regional Research Agenda (C-RRA) became possible through the project "Supporting Sustainable Mountain Development in the Caucasus (Sustainable Caucasus)" funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation under the SCOPES Program, as well as through the project “Strengthening Climate Adaptation Capacities in South Caucasus (SCAC)” Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation supported and United Nations Environmental Programme (UN Environmental Programme). The SNC-mt sees the C-RRA as a document that will help scientists and other interested stakeholders to gain insight into research needs and priorities and undertake projects with colleagues from neighbouring countries to expand knowledge and exchange information for the establishment of a shared, scientifically-justified comprehension of sustainable-development perspectives in the Caucasus ecoregion. More information about the C-RRA is available at http://caucasus-mt.net/regional-research-agenda.
