Scientists come together to discuss connections between air pollution and the Asian summer monsoon
Over the past four years, the Atmosphere Initiative at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) has hosted a series of regional atmospheric science workshops.
Improving understanding of emissions of air pollutants within and upwind of the HKH region
Short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) are those climate enforcers that have relatively short atmospheric lifetimes but are major contributors to the anthropogenic global greenhouse effect after carbon dioxide (CO2).
A study of particulate matter (PM10) in ambient conditions was initiated in January 2016 by the Atmosphere Initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Chitwan, Nepal. The study will help further the
unavoidable effect of air pollution on health, visibilty and overall well being of people in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region, the Atmosphere Initiative of ICIMOD was established in January 2013. The initiative aims to improve our
Realising the increasing effects of atmospheric changes on the fragile ecosystems and well being of people in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region, the Atmosphere Initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development
for climate-relevant emissions and efficiency measurements at brick kilns. There were 10 participants from Nepal, India and the United States, as well as a
event on short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) in Asia on 19 November at the Japan Pavilion during the 19th Conference of Parties to
Jointly organized by International Cryosphere Climate Initiative (ICCI) and ICIMOD, the conference is part of the project sponsored by the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) that aims to reduce emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs)
Knowledge Forum with Prof V. Ramanathan: The Extreme Vulnerability of the Himalayan-Tibetan Region to Global Warming and Air Pollution
Extreme Vulnerability of the Himalaya-Tibetan Region to Global Warming and Air Pollution
Nepal’s growing air pollution crisis requires continuous monitoring of air quality at many locations. This information is needed for public decision making to reduce exposure to hazardous air pollution, to identify the most cost-effective
increasingly plagued by air pollution. We cough through the dry season while days with clear views of the Himalayas become rarer. Several obvious domestic sources contribute, including open fires, vehicles, cook stoves,
This Story Grant Programme aims to encourage enthusiastic journalists in the region to write in-depth stories about atmospheric issues. The broad goal is to spread awareness about atmospheric issues among a broad range of audiences.
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
plan for short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) mitigation on 26 May 2017. The workshop was organized in
ICIMOD responded by working with kiln owners to rebuild in ways that not only improve seismic strength, but can trim coal consumption by up to 30 per cent and reduce the emission of harmful pollutants.
