of emissions produced by cook stoves are deposited on kitchen walls and ceilings, turning them black over time. This is a common sight in many villages in Nepal. This observation led a team supervised by Siva Praveen Puppala, an Atmosphere


Emission is a major determinant of air quality, and improving quantification and characterization of Emission sources in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region is one of the main goals of the Atmosphere Initiative of the International Centre for

Open burning is common in the HKH and a convenient way for farmers to eliminate of large quantities of crop residue. This practice also serves to prepare fields for the next crop cycle – wheat in spring and rice in summer.

It is currently piloting emission reduction measures in 12

The ICIMOD study analyzes the potential for increasing energy efficiency and reducing emissions from diesel generating (DG) sets used during electricity outages in the Kathmandu Valley—by switching from individual DG sets to micro-grids.

Short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) are agents that have relatively short lifetime in the atmosphere — a few days to a few decades — and a warming influence on climate. The main SLCPs are black carbon, methane and tropospheric ozone. Aside

Charcoal, a carbonaceous solid renewable fuel that is obtained as a residue left after the burning of wood and other biodegradable organic matter, is considered an important source of energy for both domestic and industrial purposes. Its demand has

Consultation meeting explores measures to reduce emissions of short-lived atmospheric pollutants

The air in Kathmandu is extremely polluted, with fine particles (PM2.5) being the major cause of concern. If you ask the average resident where all the pollution is coming from, many will point the blame at vehicles. But when we look for ways to

Launch of Study to Assess Greenhouse Gas Emissions from High Altitude Peatlands

Improving understanding of emissions of air pollutants within and upwind of the HKH region

specifically to develop an emission inventory of short-lived climate pollutants, or SLCPs. Training attendees were given a short overview on LEAP-IBC and its many potential benefits for developing improved emissions

Jointly organized by International Cryosphere Climate Initiative (ICCI) and ICIMOD, the conference is part of the project sponsored by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) that aims to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs)

for climate-relevant emissions and efficiency measurements at brick kilns. There were 10 participants from Nepal, India and the United States, as well as a

Consultation on Soft Approaches for Achieving Co-benefits from Black Carbon Emissions Reductions

As one of the world’s first carbon offset projects involving local communities in monitoring the carbon in their forests, the project provides valuable global learning on how to build the capacity of local stakeholders in implementing carbon

Green economy

Within a short span the project results showed the vast potential for saving fuel and greenhouse gas emissions, reducing indoor air pollution, and freeing up time spent in collecting fuel, especially by women, for productive activities.

A commonly used construction material in Nepal, brick is produced in approximately 1,000 kilns around the country, attracting investment worth USD 3.6 million. Across the country, kilns take an informal approach to production management and deal
