Clean Energy Access for Mountain People
ICIMOD’s current work on Energy
shows that the HKH remains energy-poor, with more than 80% of rural households still reliant on traditional solid biomass fuel for cooking and heating. This is causing enormous damage to the environment, triggering widespread harm to human
of Regional Sustainable Energy Centers (GN-SEC) which is coordinated by UNIDO in partnership with regional organizations. The network is currently supported by more than 89 Energy ministers and/or heads of
This study makes an attempt to generate database of HKH specific energy demand using both the ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ approaches and undertakes sectoral energy demand projections from 2013 to 2030
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 experiences and lessons learned from this project have been encapsulated in three publications, including policy guidelines, a training manual, project learning, and in a documentary film which hopes to help policy makers and rural development
Several technologies like solar photovoltaic home sets, solar lights, solar cookers and improved cook stoves are popular among the people in these project areas. The study recommends upscaling and replication of the successes of the project to other

Knowledge Forum on Climate Resilient Development in the Himalayan and Downstream Regions
People in the region have taken a great interest in air pollution. The risks of air pollution affecting people may be the main reason for this increase in interest about air pollution in Kathmandu and the country at large.
A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed between the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) on 14 July at ICIMOD’s headquarters in Nepal. Judith Karl,
On 3 and 4 July 2017 the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) organized the International Symposium on Funding Science and People Cooperation for a Prosperous Belt and Road in Beijing. The International Centre for Integrated Mountain
ICIMOD’s Energy Work in the Past
Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) meets in Kathmandu to tackle air pollution
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.
