Small Grants Programme and Small Scale Applications

The SERVIR-Himalaya Small Grant Programme aims to expand the network of organizations, universities, and institutions in the HKH region and to enhance the capacity for evidence-based decision making, and to generate innovative ideas for applying Earth observation data and geospatial methods/tools for decision making in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region. Selected through competitive bidding, eight organizations from Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan are currently working to address a wide range of issues common in the HKH region, such as flood forecasting, forest fire management, landslide hazard, agriculture, and biomass estimation. 

Similarly, implemented through a targeted call, SERVIR-Himalaya Small Scale Applications enable people and institutions to take full advantage of SERVIR resources in the region. It is aimed at fostering innovation and improving the dissemination of SERVIR’s data and tools.
