The Prime Minister of Nepal calls for an alliance of mountain countries at a meeting of Ministers during COP 15
On her desk, Gunjan Silwal is engrossed in her computer, analyzing glacier mass balance data, working on figures and graphs which to the untrained eyes look rather like scribblings on a toddler’s drawing book. But to the trained eyes, these are
Scientists from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) carried out mass balance measurements on Yala Glacier as part of the larger spring field campaign in the Langtang Valley.
Norway gives $12 million for adaptation and assessment in the Hindu Kush-Himalayas
Part of the climate change experienced in the Himalayan region is a result of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2), which can remain in the atmosphere and impact the climate for centuries.
The Indus River Basin is shared by four countries Afghanistan, China, India, and Pakistan, with the largest portions of the basin lying in Pakistan (52%) and India (33%). The main river originates at Lake Ngangla Rinco on the Tibetan Plateau in the
A team of scientists led by ICIMOD’s Patrick Wagnon visited Mera Glacier in the Hinku-Hunku valley of eastern Nepal in November 2013. The visit was a bi-annual trip to assess the annual and seasonal glacier-wide mass balance using the

Cryosphere describes elements of the earth containing water in a natural frozen state. This can come in the form of glaciers, snow cover, lake and river ice, permafrost, and seasonally frozen ground. The Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region is one of
Though we at ICIMOD were pleased to co-host and organize this week’s IPCC gathering in Kathmandu, the message about climate change was rather grim. Unless we take action now, global temperature averages could rise above the 2 degree level set
Over the past decade, concern for the changes wrought on ecosystems and livelihoods by climate and other changes has prompted greater awareness of the importance of this valuable resource for mountain people and downstream populations. However,
Experts agree to collaborate on Indus Basin Programme
How is climate change impacting water resources in the Himalayas? That’s a big question, and now there’s a comprehensive atlas that policy makers and practitioners can turn to for answers and information.
Fieldwork on glaciers is an integral part of the Cryosphere Initiative at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). Researchers from the centre and partners in Bhutan and Nepal will once again head to the glaciers to
As part of monitoring and assessment of changes in glaciers, snow and glacio-hydrology in the Hindu Kush Himalayas, the Cryosphere Initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) organised the week-long
In the Hindu Kush Himalayan region, many people live near permafrost or in areas potentially affected by changes in permafrost. Permafrost is ground material at or below 0°C for two or more years. The near-surface layer above it thaws during the
