Mini-Workshop: Enhancing Resilience of Mountain Communities in the Hindu Kush Himalayas - Meet ICIMOD and its Norwegian Partners


Dr David Molden, Director General of ICIMOD, will present ICIMOD’s main priorities, challenges and achievements in the Hindu Kush Himalayas (HKH) and how countries in the HKH region can work together to better meet these challenges brought about by the various drivers of change.

The Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research – Oslo (CICERO) and GRID-Arendal, promoters of the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP), will be presenting on two main topics: a) lessons learned from HICAP, which include climate change and the complex, multi-layered factors affecting local food security in the HKH region, and b) strategic climate communications, which will focus on translating science into policy and action.

The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) will also be presenting the highlights of the past cooperation campaigns and new challenges in the region. 

The event is being organized by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD) at the NORAD information centre.
