Three ICIMOD interns – Laxmi Thapa, Eliza Shrestha, and Florencia Tuladhar – together with five students of the Marshall Space Center in Huntsville, Alabama, US, won the grand prize in the NASA DEVELOP Virtual Poster Session. During their two-month internship at ICIMOD, they worked with teammates in the US under the NASA DEVELOP initiative on a project to develop a climate change vulnerability index in Nepal using NASA EOS. The Nepal project was commended for an outstanding video, focused research, and great teamwork across different time-zones.
