Air quality

LEAP-IBC is being used in Nepal specifically to develop an emission inventory of short-lived climate pollutants, or SLCPs. Training attendees were given a short overview on LEAP-IBC and its many potential benefits for developing improved emissions

part of an Atmosphere Initiative research, Manisha Mehra, a research associate at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and the 2016 recipient of the Atmosphere Initiative PhD Fellowship, is undertaking an

Air pollution and the problems associated with it have gained the attention of people in the Hindu Kush Himalaya and the world at large. As more studies reveal the linkages between air pollution and human health, more people have started paying

Air pollution is a major environmental and health concern in South Asia. Every year it is responsible for over a million premature deaths as well as significant crop losses. Certain air pollutants also contribute to regional climate change,

World Environment Day 2014

Together for Cleaner Air: ŠKODA and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development partner for improved air quality in Nepal

People in the region have taken a great interest in air pollution. The risks of air pollution affecting people may be the main reason for this increase in interest about air pollution in Kathmandu and the country at large.

Studies show that using more efficient technologies, mainly during the firing of bricks, can reduce pollutant emissions by 10–50%, depending on the process, scale and fuel used. The Brick Production Initiative (BPI) of the Climate and Clean Air

This meeting aims to discuss the on-going progress, and to continue the ICIMOD-led joint plans to study about science, impacts, and policy aspects of the persistent fog over the Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) during winters.

‘Dhuwa’, a short telefilm about air pollution resulting from open fires premiered on 1 October 2015 at Kumari Hall in Kathmandu. Dhuwa, meaning smoke, was also telecast on Nepal Television on 18 October 2015...

Activities

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

As the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP) at ICIMOD enters the final stages of its six-year implementation period, the annual HICAP Partners Workshop for 2016 will bring together partners who have worked with HICAP for the past
