Much of the water originates around the highest mountains on earth, a region often called “the third pole” because of its immense concentration of snow and ice, the largest outside the Arctic and Antarctic. Relying on a complex interplay of
The centre will be part of the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centers (GN-SEC) which is coordinated by UNIDO in partnership with regional organizations. The network is currently supported by more than 89 energy ministers and/or heads
The study shows that the HKH remains energy-poor, with more than 80% of rural households still reliant on traditional solid biomass fuel for cooking and heating. This is causing enormous damage to the environment, triggering widespread harm to human
The experiences and lessons learned from this project have been encapsulated in three publications, including policy guidelines, a training manual, project learning, and in a documentary film which hopes to help policy makers and rural development
Clean Energy Access for Mountain People
This study makes an attempt to generate database of HKH specific energy demand using both the ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ approaches and undertakes sectoral energy demand projections from 2013 to 2030
Forests cover around a quarter of the Hindu Kush Himalayas. They’re an integral part of the transboundary landscape, connecting numerous ecosystems and conserving biodiversity, sustaining livelihoods, providing timber and other resources and
Renewable Energy Technology
Many records indicate that the trend of rising temperatures is more significant in mountain regions than adjacent lowlands. Climate models also suggest that the future will bring greater temperature increase and more erratic precipitation.
Improving understanding of impacts of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) and atmospheric change on the cryosphere, water cycle, ecosystems, agriculture, human health, income, tourism, gender and livelihoods
Let us move beyond the description of the problem, to putting our heads together to find solutions...
The three-day SARAS workshop aimed to identify gaps in the atmospheric research in the HKH region and to encourage potential collaboration among atmospheric scientists across the region.
A workshop was held in Varanasi, India from 19-21 June 2014 to develop a standardized protocol for climate-relevant emissions and efficiency measurements at brick kilns. There were 10 participants from Nepal, India and the United States, as well as
