GIS and Remote Sensing

It’s high time businesses invested in mountain ecosystem management

Ecosystems provide a network of services to communities that help sustain livelihoods. Integration of earth observation data with GIS makes it possible to quantify the supplies and demands of ecosystem services and provide reliable data for

Urbanization is leading to water scarcity for millions of people in the growing cities of the Hindu Kush Himalayas. The massive river systems that supply the water for a range of daily needs, from drinking water to electricity generation, can’t

Rural enterprise development

Migration and Remittances

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

Poverty and vulnerability assessment

The Hindu Kush Himalayas are a hot spot of climate change. There is already evidence of major changes affecting mountain areas, with potentially devastating consequences for hundreds of millions of people in the mountains and downstream. Adaptation

Glaciers

Solar powered irrigation pumps (SPIP) provides an alternative technology that has been tested widely in the region and has been found to be a technically proven and workable solution and is suited for all categories of farms – large holder, small

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.

Mountains may be rugged and majestic, but they’re also fragile environments that are particularly vulnerable to climate change. The high peaks of the Himalayas are a vast storehouse of water in frozen form, with the world’s greatest

Resilient mountain village

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
