Since the 1990’s, Southeast Asia and other neighbouring countries are affected by excessive vegetative burning. Anthropogenic fires — fires resulting from, or the influence of, human beings — have become the most economic tool for clearing

Biomass experts meet in Kathmandu

Biomass Study

The study of forest above-ground biomass (AGB) for estimating the carbon stock in each tree is important, as it is well established that the emission of carbon is the largest factor affecting today’s climate.

This research study developed methodologies for forest AGB estimation in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region using optical high-resolution (WorldView, GeoEye) and SAR (ALOS-1/2 PALSAR) remote-sensing data coupled with field measurements...

International Expert Group Meeting on “Multi scale Forest Biomass Assessment and Monitoring of Hindu Kush Himalayan Region”

Using spaceborne SAR in synergy with other methods for forest above-ground biomass assessment in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) Region

A two-day training was organised at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) Knowledge Park at Godavari for community forestry user group members from Godavari Kunda FUG, Yale Youth Club from Lalitpur District and Water

To address rural energy problems, twenty seven villagers from Kyang Taung, Kyang Nur, Pantin, Thyetpin, Antpet and Zeyar, Myanmar were trained to make bio-briquettes using unwanted biomass such as forest weeds, pine needles and bamboo branches.

Farmers from Nepal’s Sindupalanchowak and Ramechap districts attended a four-day hands-on training on water harvesting technology, bio-intensive agriculture farming system, and enclosed composting from 16 to 19 August 2017.

Hands on Training on Contour Hedgerow Agroforestry Practices to Farmers and District Agricultural Office Staff from Argakhanchi

A study of particulate matter (PM10) in ambient conditions was initiated in January 2016 by the Atmosphere Initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Chitwan, Nepal. The study will help further the

Ecosystems provide a network of services to communities that help sustain livelihoods. Integration of earth observation data with GIS makes it possible to quantify the supplies and demands of ecosystem services and provide reliable data for

reliant on traditional solid biomass fuel for cooking and heating. This is causing enormous damage to the environment, triggering widespread harm to human

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.

The SERVIR-Himalaya (http://www.icimod.org/servir-himalaya) was established in October 2010 as a joint initiative of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and ICIMOD and

The SERVIR-Himalaya Small Grants Programme has spurred innovative ways to help decision makers do everything, from expanding banana production to monitoring forest biomass from the sky.

Sustainable energy

More than a hundred local community members participated in a training workshop in late January to learn about management of invasive alien plant species to make bio-briquettes and bio-composting. Participants ranged from students from different
