5th Regional Steering Commitee Meeting - Regional Flood Information System in the Hindu Kush Himalayan Region (HKH-HYCOS)
Workshop on the action research design to build the adaptive capacity of the migrant sending households in the flood affected rural communities
South Asia needs to enrich Regional Flood Information System urgently – Analysis
Decision support system for rapti river flood management.
Local stakeholder consultation on the action research to build the adaptive capacity of the migrant sending households in the flood affected rural communities
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.
Basin has further increased flood damage. This new finding was based on a research by ICIMOD Koshi Basin Programme partner AN Sinha Institute of Social Science (ANSISS) Patna, India. The research was highlighted in India’s largest
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
Mountains in the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) are ‘water towers’, which provide water and services such as food, biodiversity, and energy to 1.3 billion people downstream. However, climate change is these mountains. Scientists project a likely
The action research explores how remittances can be used by households to improve their ability to prepare and respond to disasters and reduce vulnerability.
2015 glacial lake outburst flood (GLOF) in Lemthang Tsho in Bhutan recommends regular monitoring of critical glacial lakes as a starting point for good risk management. The paper specifically recommends revisiting critical
What do butterflies, rising rivers, unstable mountainsides, and the Sherpas of the Everest region have in common? All were the focus of new knowledge tools and applications honoured in 2015 with ICIMOD’s ICT for Mountain Development Award, which
to pilot Community Based Flood Early Warning System (CBFEWS) in Gilgit Baltistan under the project ‘Agricultural Water, Energy
After three years of initial research conducted in partnership with the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR), FutureWater, and several regional institutions, ICIMOD has been produced path-breaking research findings, which have not only been
A training for readers of sediment measurement in selected gauging stations of the Koshi River basin in Nepal was organised by the Government of Nepal
The Himalaya are crucially important for India. Its mountains are ‘water towers’ that provide water to millions of people , and services such as food, biodiversity, and energy. However, the warming trend is comparably higher in the mountains
