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.
The training is a regular annual activity conducted under the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme (CMP) of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). It aims to build the capacities of national partners on the use of Remote
Kailash sacred landscape covers more than 31,000 km2 geographical area and is spread across China, India, and Nepal. It exhibits diverse vegetation, starting from tropical forest at around 800m altitude to alpine steppe found at altitude higher than
The training was both theoretical and practical, as participants went out into the community of Udayapur to practice their skills.
The adverse impacts of environmental shocks and stressors will be disproportionately high in developing countries, especially among the poor and vulnerable populations. People will respond to these impacts with a combination of in-situ and ex-situ
Disaster reporting in Nepal is still paper based, which is time consuming and information is often outdated before it can be disseminated. A digital system is needed to make planning easier for those working in disaster management. The interactive
maps illustrating village-level inundation have the potential to support BSDMA in several community-level risk reduction activities. Such information is crucial to the government’s smooth response to flood management as waters continue to
ICIMOD and Kathmandu University, Nepal, launched ‘Disaster Reporting’, an android application that enables users to report disaster events along with essential information, such as impact and immediate relief requirements.
The map uses L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar-2 (PALSAR-2) images from Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
