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
The samples collected were kept frozen until they were brought down to a lower elevation and melted samples were filtered immediately. The deposition of snow collected in the filter which will be sent to the laboratory in Institute of Tibetan
The REDD Implementation Centre (RIC), a body of the Nepal Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation (MoFSC), is responsible for the development and implementation of REDD readiness activities. It is currently piloting emission reduction measures in
Kailash sacred landscape covers more than 31,000 km2 geographical area and is spread across China, India, and Nepal. It exhibits diverse vegetation, starting from tropical forest at around 800m altitude to alpine steppe found at altitude higher than
ICIMOD and partners carry out an expedition to Yala Glacier in the Langtang Valley, Nepal, as part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme, which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
Part of the climate change experienced in the Himalayan region is a result of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2), which can remain in the atmosphere and impact the climate for centuries.
improve terrestrial carbon stocks, conserve forests, stimulate sustainable management of forests, and enhance forest
Particles 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
Up to 18 thousand gross tonnes of carbon are stored in worldwide soils, almost double the amount stored in all terrestrial plants and over three times that of the atmospheric pool...

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