The workshop aims to bring together the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme
(HICAP promoters CICERO
) to provide future direction to the programme and to review the progress of the programme in terms of activities undertaken in 2013. Furthermore, the detailed work-plan with milestones and outputs until December 2014 will be outlined by all parties. The workshop is expected to provide a clear picture of the activities and outputs achieved by the promoters. It will also provide a framework of collaborative field research that needs to be further carried out jointly by promoters in the HICAP sub-basins: Upper Indus, Koshi, Upper Brahmaputra, Eastern Brahmaputra and Upper Salween-Mekong basins.
Objectives of the workshop
- Enhance interactions among all HICAP promoters about their respective roles
- Review activities carried out by all three promoters and achievements in terms of outputs and outcomes
- Identify new/potential areas of partnership with existing and new operational partners
- Develop a work plan with milestones and outputs until December 2014 for each component
