Extreme heat conditions in South Asia are making the headlines for the second year in a row. The HI-AWARE project is currently studying this extreme heat and ways to cope with it in three major cities in South Asia; Delhi in India, Faisalabad in
One of the biggest unknowns in how glaciers will respond to climate change are the meteorological conditions and melt rates at the glacier surface, and how these conditions relate to data from standard observation networks and/or climate reanalysis
Community-based flood early warning systems will help communities in the Koshi basin better prepare for a flood
Winners of the 2015 International SpaceApps Challenge Kathmandu
Fieldwork on glaciers is an integral part of the Cryosphere Initiative at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). Researchers from the centre and partners in Bhutan and Nepal will once again head to the glaciers to
To catch the highest discharge of Langtang Khola and Lirung outlet, a team of glacio-hydrologists from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and Kathmandu University conducted a field expedition to Langtang valley
Forest biomass is the sum of the above ground living organic material contained in trees, which is expressed as dry weight per unit area. Forest carbon trading has gained attention in recent years, for which practical methods for estimating forest
Scientists from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) carried out mass balance measurements on Yala Glacier as part of the larger spring field campaign in the Langtang Valley.
By the mid-monsoon, flash floods of Bhote Koshi had already swept away more than 65 houses and placed 200 more at risk. With rains becoming heavier, further damage was expected.
Prototype of Community-Based Flood Early Warning System Installed at Godavari Knowledge Park
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 installation of CB-FEWS in Mahottari District followed a five-day CB-FEWS training at ICIMOD’s Knowledge Park in early June. While ICIMOD and its partners are involved in the initial stages...
Bhutan becomes first regional country to benefit from MODIS Snow Cover data prepared by ICIMOD SERVIR-Himalaya
Deteriorating air quality in Nepal and its adverse effects on health and daily activities of the public has drawn the attention of various stakeholders.
A small team of ICIMOD researchers recently returned to earthquake-ravaged Langtang Valley to rebuild and maintain the network of hydrological and meteorological stations that was partly destroyed by the 25 April Gorkha tremors...
National Training on Operationalizing Bangladesh’s National Flood Information System
The training was organized by ICIMOD with technical assistance from Sustainable Eco Engineering, supported by the Governments of Norway and Sweden in India (Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme) and the Australian Government through the
Langtang Valley has been the focus of intense glaciological, meteorological, and hydrological fieldwork over the past four years as part of the Norwegian-supported cryosphere monitoring project. Twelve meteorological and hydrological stations
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
