The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) is one of the most dynamic, diverse, and complex mountain systems in the world, providing fresh water resources to more than 210 million people in the mountains and 1.3 billion people downstream.
energy and water are subsidized to boost crop production, could it lead to more and cheaper food but a shrinking, degraded water supply? Growing crops for biofuels might promise more abundant, cleaner energy, but what happens to food security
How is climate change impacting water resources in the Himalayas? That’s a big question, and now there’s a comprehensive atlas that policy makers and practitioners can turn to for answers and information.
ICIMOD’s first step: Address the water problem through rooftop rainwater harvesting, new ponds, and better management. The idea proved so popular that households not involved in the pilot began building the water systems themselves.
the International Journal of Water Resources Development was devoted in 2015 to sharing the research of ICIMOD experts on a range of Himalayan Water-related challenges from the status of glaciers to socioeconomic and policy aspects
Wetlands in the Erhai Lake basin of Yunnan Province are a rich habitat for plants and animals and play a key role in water purification for China’s second largest highland lake.
Alpine eco-systems are sensitive to global temperature rise and have been a focus of climate change research. As resources of fresh water, the cryosphere as a whole, and glaciers in particular, have drawn much interest from the scientific community.
Solar pumps are as powerful as diesel pumps, but cleaner, less expensive, quieter, and easier to use. The operating cost, after the price of the pump itself, is essentially free. The added findings on gender equity could make them an even more
Strategic Engagement with Corporate Sector Enhanced by Work with SAARC CCI
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
Knowledge generation and use
ICIMOD research argues that a ’nexus approach’ should be incorporated into future climate change adaptation strategies
The aim of “research into use” at ICIMOD means generating knowledge and practices that develop capacity and drive innovation for addressing the challenges that face mountain people
melting, landslides, and water scarcity overload our everyday lives. The stories of environmental degradation are so overwhelming that there is a sense that we cannot really do anything about it. Yet, there are
The impact of ICIMOD’s work in 2015 is visible in its ability to work with its member countries to respond to the urgent needs of mountain communities, from investigating a glacial lake outburst flood in Bhutan to quickly responding to the
