To mark International Day for Biological Diversity 2018 #IDB2018, ICIMOD is pleased to offer a screen saver for free download. The screen saver displays a stream of breath-taking photography from ICIMOD’s regional member countries – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan – taken by our in-house photographer, and other amateur and professional photographers.
As an intergovernmental organization working on issues of environment and sustainability from the high Himalaya all the way down to the oceans, ICIMOD needs to set an example. As we mark World Environment Day, ICIMOD bans all single-use plastic and all open fires from the ICIMOD campus as well as from all ICIMOD-organized events. We encourage all ICIMOD staff to pledge to do the same in their homes.
