ICIMOD serves as an open house for knowledge initiatives on sustainable mountain development. Its knowledge grows from competencies in the Thematic Areas in the implementation of Regional Programmes.
Information and knowledge are communicated through publications, databases, multimedia, and web content, all of which are available globally online.
Looking to the future, new communications and interactive knowledge sharing tools are quickly becoming the global norm and will provide further momentum to knowledge management efforts. ICIMOD seeks to keep abreast of these global innovations while remaining relevant to the socio-cultural context of the region. Means of knowledge sharing include:
promoting capacity development at many levels, including among youth, most importantly to help partners and policy makers transform the results of research into information that can be used for improved decision making and practical action;
distilling and communicating relevant messages for action towards sustainable mountain development at all levels; and
encouraging ICIMOD’s partners to be actively involved in the knowledge development cycle.
