Towards A Holistic Understanding of Wellbeing for the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH)
Global development discourse has come a long way in its journey of conceptualizing, measuring, and assessing the development of societies, human wellbeing, and happiness. From unidimensional income-poverty measures to multidimensional measurements of poverty and the Human Development Reports, and most recently World Happiness Reports, this journey has taken varied trajectories.
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development announces its first annual Mountain Prize, to be awarded to an individual or organization in recognition of their significant efforts to advance the mountain cause in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region through innovations in their different capacities.
