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.
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
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
Consultation meeting explores measures to reduce emissions of short-lived atmospheric pollutants
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
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
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
Realising the increasing effects of atmospheric changes on the fragile ecosystems and well being of people in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region, the Atmosphere Initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development
The Hindu Kush Himalayas are a hot spot of climate change. There is already evidence of major changes affecting mountain areas, with potentially devastating consequences for hundreds of millions of people in the mountains and downstream. Adaptation
Poverty and vulnerability assessment
Rural enterprise development
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.
