The role of mountains in providing indispensible water resources for municipal and industrial water supply, irrigation, hydropower production, and other environmental services is well-known and unquestioned (e.g., Barnett et al. 2005; EEA 2009; Viviroli 2003, 2007).
Furthermore, several studies have also underlined the sensitivity and vulnerability of these mountain ecosystems to the impacts of climate change (Beniston 1994; Diaz et al. 1997; COM 2009).
