Energy efficiency studies have traditionally focused on households or industries. Recent studies by the World Bank and the US Agency for International Development (USAID)’s South Asia Regional Initiative for Energy Integration (SARI/EI) programme

The centre will be part of the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centers (GN-SEC) which is coordinated by UNIDO in partnership with regional organizations. The network is currently supported by more than 89 energy ministers and/or heads

Hindu Kush Karakoram Pamir Landscape

The Hindu Kush 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

The ICIMOD study analyzes the potential for increasing energy efficiency and reducing emissions from diesel generating (DG) sets used during electricity outages in the Kathmandu Valley—by switching from individual DG sets to micro-grids.

The region has high hydropower potential, but the changing climate and likely changes in the hydrological regime may pose a risk to future hydropower development. The changing probabilities and magnitudes of extreme events can place an additional

ICIMOD’s current work on Energy

The Karakoram Area Development Organization (KADO) and Kunjerav Villagers Organization (KVO) selected the 70 candidates from the Karim Abad and Soost valleys. Master trainers from ITSD, Danin, Chitral, provided the training, which included both

Urbanization is leading to water scarcity for millions of people in the growing cities of the Hindu Kush Himalayas. The massive river systems that supply the water for a range of daily needs, from drinking water to electricity generation, can’t

Biodiversity

72. Water
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 may be rugged and majestic, but they’re also fragile environments that are particularly vulnerable to climate change. The high peaks of the Himalayas are a vast storehouse of water in frozen form, with the world’s greatest

Mountain Livelihoods

GIS and Remote Sensing

In the mountains, permafrost stabilizes rock slopes, moraines and debris-covered slopes. For instance, moraines consist of loose sediment often held together by permafrost. When permafrost thaws, slopes become more vulnerable to erosion. Debris and

ICIMOD focuses on a broad range of issues, topics and concerns in its work to enable sustainable development in the complex environment of the Hindu Kush Himalayas. These areas are interconnected. For instance, a programme designed to address a
