between communities and project developers. ICIMOD set out to learn what works and doesn’t work by undertaking the first comprehensive research

In partnership with the Yunnan Institute of Environmental Science, Kunming Institute of Botany (KIB), and the Chengdu Institute of Biology (CIB), ICIMOD is organizing a three day symposium in Dali, China. The symposium will bring researchers and

Pilot research on wetlands to kick start in Dali

ICIMOD has developed significant expertise on wetlands in the Hindu Kush Himalayas over the course of a number of research projects and pilots on wetlands resources, including knowledge on improved management of wetland resources.

The SERVIR-Himalaya Small Grants Programme has spurred innovative ways to help decision makers do everything, from expanding banana production to monitoring forest biomass from the sky.

Realizing that paper-and-pen documentation would limit the capacity to capture a full picture, ICIMOD set out to create a tool that would take advantage of digital imagery and enable beforeand-after comparisons. Within ten days, with the help of

Knowledge generation and use

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.

The action research explores how remittances can be used by households to improve their ability to prepare and respond to disasters and reduce vulnerability.

What do butterflies, rising rivers, unstable mountainsides, and the Sherpas of the Everest region have in common? All were the focus of new knowledge tools and applications honoured in 2015 with ICIMOD’s ICT for Mountain Development Award, which

By the end of the year, ICIMOD had repaired broken weather stations, replaced broken sensors and solar panels, and continued its scientific work by conducting surveys of surface height change of the debriscovered Langtang and Lirung glaciers.

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
