planning of water resources. Hydrological models provide insight into different parts of the
hydrologists, glaciologists and other experts working in related fields at ICIMOD and its partner institutes work regularly at high altitudes (between 4,000 to 6,000 meters) to collect data on glacier mass balance, snow, weather and
The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) is highly dynamic as there are many socioeconomic and environmental drivers of change at play, including climate change. The impacts of these changes challenge the resilience of natural and human capacities and
In the mountains, permafrost stabilizes rock slopes, moraines and debris-covered slopes. For instance, moraines consist of loose sediment often held together by permafrost. When permafrost thaws, slopes become more vulnerable to erosion. Debris and
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
He pulled the string of the generator one more time, It did not move an inch. Not only was the machine stuck, so were we. Fieldwork is not like in the old days any more where a tape measure and notebook were enough. Now we bring drones (unmanned
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
On 8 April 2016, four students in their final year of MS Research in Glaciology shared their thesis progress with cryosphere experts from ICIMOD. The students are enrolled in the MS Research in Glaciology program at Kathmandu University, which is
2013 Monsoon Floods in Nepal and India: What happened and what could have been done?

20 participants from HKH region trained on the Weather Research and Forecast with Chemistry (WRF-Chem) Tutorial
A training on high altitude mountain medicine to prevent and treat altitude related sicknesses was organised by the Cryosphere Initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) 15 January 2016 in ICIMOD
Upgrading satellite-based flood forecasting with near real-time Jason-2 satellite altimeter data
The 2015 Gorkha earthquake and its repeated aftershocks not only triggered thousands of landslides, but also weakened the soil and destabilized Nepal’s steep slopes. The 2015 monsoon was anticipated to further weaken the slopes and trigger
A 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
The way up to Rikha Samba is steep. Occasionally we encounter snow showers crossing over windy high passes, but always in high spirit.
Modelling tools determine future water availability and demand and have the potential to help planners and decision makers
