Himalayan students present their work on Earth observation and climate change in the United States
The aim of the workshop is to build better understanding of on-going interventions related to climate change adaptation and livelihoods in Himalica pilot sites.
climate pollutants (SLCPs) are agents that have relatively short lifetime in the atmosphere — a few days to a few decades — and a warming influence on climate. The main SLCPs are black carbon, methane and tropospheric ozone. Aside
EU Parliamentarians express strong interest in regional cooperation for climate change in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region
The workshop will focus on existing capabilities to model and assess these changes, mitigation and adaptability strategies in a rapidly changing cryosphere, eco-social sustainability, and the role of the cryosphere in the earth’s future.

The Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region has nearly 500 GW hydropower potential, but only a fraction of it has been developed. As countries in the region gear up for increased hydropower production to alleviate energy poverty, they find themselves
For many, mountains evoke powerful emotions with their breathtaking landscapes that inspire wonder. Mountains cover nearly 27% of the world’s land surface and directly support 22% of the world’s people. They serve as water towers to the world,
Upstream and downstream are connected. So are natural resources and human livelihoods. Improving the management of water resources in the Hindu Kush Himalayas means recognizing those connections and building them into policy making and development

With warming in the HKH being higher than the global average (ICIMOD, 2007), climate induced natural hazards are likely to be exacerbated, including severe glacial melting and the formation of glacial lakes and, GLOFs.
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
