Knowledge Forum with Prof V. Ramanathan: The Extreme Vulnerability of the Himalayan-Tibetan Region to Global Warming and Air Pollution
Glaciers in most regions around the globe are retreating due to ongoing climate change. But glaciers in the Karakoram region of the Indus River Basin have not seen any significant area or volume change in the past four decades. This phenomenon has
ICIMOD and partners from the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme, Kathmandu University, will conduct an expedition to Rikha Samba Glacier in the Hidden Valley, Lower Mustang, Nepal, as a part of the Cryosphere Initiative funded by the Government of
Researchers from ICIMOD’s Cryosphere Initiative, the University of Utrecht and Kathmandu University are conducting a research expedition to Langtang valley from 16 April to 4 May. The researchers will visit several sites to maintain automatic
The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) is highly dynamic as there are many socioeconomic and environmental drivers of change at play, including climate change. The impacts of these changes challenge the resilience of natural and human capacities and
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council (BARC), and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) organized a day-long consultation and user engagement
The northern region of Bangladesh has been facing increasing agricultural droughts which can lead to reduce the productivity of farming communities, especially where irrigation is not available. Climate change projections also suggest a future
ICIMOD is seeking a GIS Specialist in its Afghanistan Office to support MAIL’s GIS Unit.
The six expedition team members carried out annual glacier mass balance measurements, measured snow density, downloaded data and maintained the hydrological station.
The way up to Rikha Samba is steep. Occasionally we encounter snow showers crossing over windy high passes, but always in high spirit.
New Studies: Indus River flow variability and trends
Water generated in the high mountains of the Himalayas plays a critical role in the major rivers of Asia and in the lives of people that live there. A new mini-documentary produced by Science Media, in collaboration with scientists from Utrecht
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) through its Cryosphere Initiative hosted the first International Glacier Symposium (IGS) in Kathmandu. The week-long event took place from 1 to 6 March, 2015...

Climate Change in Downstream Areas of the Indus River Basin: Local Perceptions and Adaptation Measures
Experts from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development’s (ICIMOD) Cryosphere Initiative and Department of Hydro Met Services (DHMS) in Bhutan carried out a joint field expedition to Bhutan’s benchmark glacier, Thana Glacier,
This training covers theoretical glacier mass balance monitoring which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
Narrowing the Knowledge Gap on Glaciers in High Mountain Asia
Langtang Valley has been the focus of intense glaciological, meteorological, and hydrological fieldwork over the past four years as part of the Norwegian-supported cryosphere monitoring project. Twelve meteorological and hydrological stations
