Died Professor Bruno Messerli
February 4, 2019, at 88-year life after a serious long illness died the famous Swiss geographer, Professor Bruno Messerli.
Bruno Messerli made an invaluable contribution to the development of mountain geography in its new dimension – global change and sustainable development. The group of international experts, led by Bruno Messerli "Mountain agenda-21", has achieved the inclusion of mountain issues into the "Global agenda for the XXI century" of the United Nations conference in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. He was a foreign member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and co-author of a new direction of research of mountain regions, which arose in the mid-1980s.
