The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) is prone to natural hazards. Climate change and its impacts exacerbate this susceptibility. Floods and flash floods are major natural hazards in the HKH and are catastrophic to downstream communities. Many rivers and

community-based flood early warning system (CB-FEWS) is an integrated system of tools and plans to detect and respond to flood emergencies. It’s managed by the communities themselves and, if properly designed and implemented, can make the

Every year, monsoon precipitation results in floods of various magnitudes inundating large areas of the Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Indus basins in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region. Flooding results in loss of lives and livelihoods displacing

When water levels rise in flood-prone rivers, villagers are increasingly able to react quickly enough to save lives and livelihoods – whether they live in Assam, India, or the Koshi River basin of Nepal, or, in the latest upscaling of a successful

The Expert Consultation Workshop on Improving Flood Risk Management in Bihar was organised by the Water Resources Department (WRD) of Bihar 18-19 February in Patna with support from the World Bank. International experts on flood forecasting, senior

The frequency and intensity of flash floods is rapidly increasing in the Himalayan region. Flash floods carrying huge amounts of water, loaded with debris and sediment, are much more hazardous and tend to affect more people than normal monsoon

The landslide early warning system developed by the BUET-JIDPUS will help authorities to reach out to these communities on time to alert and relocate them.

Web-based Landslide Early Warning System for the Chittagong Metropolitan Area

A hazard is an agent that harms or damages life, health, property, or the environment. It can be either natural or attributable to an anthropogenic activity that results in imbalances in ecological cycles and ecosystems as a whole.

is designed to enhance the capacity of participants and familiarize them with the concept of community-based flood risk management. The course will provide technical know-how as well as conceptual knowledge about the use of flood early

With warming in the HKH being higher than the global average (ICIMOD, 2007), climate induced natural hazards are likely to be exacerbated, including severe glacial melting and the formation of glacial lakes and, GLOFs.

A review and planning meeting was held in Islamabad on 7 June, 2016 on two projects underway in the Upper Indus Basin (UIB),

ICIMOD provided the flood outlook for various locations in Nepal to the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM).

What do butterflies, rising rivers, unstable mountainsides, and the Sherpas of the Everest region have in common? All were the focus of new knowledge tools and applications honoured in 2015 with ICIMOD’s ICT for Mountain Development Award, which

NASA’s Space Apps Challenge is being hosted for the fifth time in Kathmandu, Nepal. The Space Apps Challenge is an international hackathon that occurs over 48 hours in cities around the world. ICIMOD has participated in the organization and

The Himalayan region faces a greater uncertainty of earthquakes and question come to peoples’ mind on when, where, and how big. Science has not developed enough to predict earthquakes and even California in US is still struggling to develop

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), home to SERVIR-Hindu Kush Himalaya (SERVIR-HKH) in Nepal, and Mercy Corps Nepal hosted the Space Apps Challenge in Kathmandu from 29 to 30 April 2017. The Robotics Association of

A field team was soon on its way, an example of the quick response to the needs of its regional member countries that ICIMOD is poised to provide. The scientific team, put together by the SERVIR-Himalaya Initiative and Cryosphere Monitoring

The workshop will bring together members of the SERVIR Applied Science Team (AST) and select partners from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Pakistan working with the SERVIR Hindu Kush Himalaya (SERVIRHKH) initiative at ICIMOD.
