HICAP Promoters Meeting


The Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP) Promoters Committee Meeting held 11-15 March at ICIMOD headquarters brought together teams from the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research-Oslo (CICERO) and UNEP-GRID/Arendal

Discussions during the week-long meeting – headed by Dr Cecilie Mauritzen, Director of CICERO, and Dr Peter Prokosch, Director of UNEP-GRID/Arendal – included the topics of overall scientific framing for HICAP, coordination between research activities in different sub-basins, and an international conference in 2014 to bring in global and regional scientists and practitioners together to discuss adaptation approaches relevant to the Hindu Kush Himalayas. The teams from CICERO and UNEP-GRID/Arendal also held a series of discussions with ICIMOD’s HICAP team on ongoing and planned research activities and visited the ICIMOD Knowledge Park at Godavari.
