Energy efficiency studies have traditionally focused on households or industries. Recent studies by the World Bank and the US Agency for International Development (USAID)’s South Asia Regional Initiative for Energy Integration (SARI/EI) programme
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
The ICIMOD study analyzes the potential for increasing energy efficiency and reducing emissions from diesel generating (DG) sets used during electricity outages in the Kathmandu Valley—by switching from individual DG sets to micro-grids.
The region has high hydropower potential, but the changing climate and likely changes in the hydrological regime may pose a risk to future hydropower development. The changing probabilities and magnitudes of extreme events can place an additional
Pastoralism and agro-pastoralism
Though a variety of interpretations exist, the term ‘benefit sharing’ references a new set of programmatic methods to reconcile the uneven incidence of costs and benefits resulting from hydropower development, an attempt to recognise the diverse
