The Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) project, Building Resilience to Climate Related Hazards, Ministry of Population and Environment (MOPE), Government of Nepal, with support from the Nepal Agriculture Research Council is working on the
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) identifies drought as one of the major climate risks in south Asia. The report projects that climate change will affect food security by the middle of the 21st
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
Bangladesh is one of the world
Working closely with the SERVIR Applied Science team, SERVIR-HKH is implementing weather research and long- and short-term forecasting models, and deploying climate services for consumption across other service areas—agriculture and droughts.
SERVIR-HKH is monitoring annual forest and land cover at national and regional levels. It is assessing climate change vulnerability an adaptation planning for forest ecosystems, and ecosystem service using the ARIES (ARtificial Intelligence for
SERVIR-HKH is developing an agriculture advisory system and a food security vulnerability information system for Nepal, and drought monitoring and early warning systems for Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan.
The project ‘Engaging Local Citizens to Map Environmental, Agriculture and Food Security Data’ explores the use of free and open infrastructure of OpenStreetMap (OSM) to map data related to environment, agriculture, and food security...
Over the years, the approach to natural disasters has changed from response and relief to risk reduction, with policy focusing more and more on building resilience and increasing preparedness among communities living in hazard prone areas...
The landslide early warning system developed by the BUET-JIDPUS will help authorities to reach out to these communities on time to alert and relocate them.
Across the Hindu Kush Himalayas, forest fires are devastating to local communities and ecosystems, and are a huge challenge for forest managers. The first challenge to stopping forest fires is getting accurate and timely information, including...
Forest fires are a major challenge in Nepal, where large patches of forest are lost each year as a result of fire incidents. In recent years, the number of forest fire incidents has risen, further contributing...
The study of forest above-ground biomass (AGB) for estimating the carbon stock in each tree is important, as it is well established that the emission of carbon is the largest factor affecting today’s climate.
Strengthening the capacity of satellite-based flood forecasting using near real time Jason-2 satellite altimeter data under SERVIR-Himalaya Small Grants Programme, ICIMOD
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
The community-based forest fire information system complements the efforts of ICIMOD to provide timely information about forest fire incidents in Nepal to relevant officials in the forestry sector. ICIMOD’s current forest fire Information system
The results of the project were discussed with stakeholders from Nepal’s Ministry of Agricultural Development and Ministry of Forests and Soil Conservation, research institutes, non-governmental organizations, and farmers’ representatives during
