AfroMont is an African network of scientists and stakeholders involved in studying and promoting sustainable mountain resources and livelihoods, and is supported by the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) at the University of Bern, Switzerland. The AfroMont platform promotes information sharing to enable African researchers to  collaborate locally and internationally, strengthen their projects, build their skills and networks, and connect with international funding opportunities to research key montane issues – and communicate their findings. See AfroMont’s web site.bEvents and meetings are arranged by AfroMont.

Mountain Research Initiative is the international body under which Afromont falls. It was formed in the 1990s, by the vision and spirit of a group of scientists from various countries, known as the “mountain mafia”.
