Training on Application of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems for Mapping and Monitoring of Glaciers. 18 Jan 2016 - 22 Jan 2016 Training on high altitude mountain medicine 15 Jan 2016 - 16 Jan 2016 Introduction to Data
This research study developed methodologies for forest AGB estimation in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region using optical high-resolution (WorldView, GeoEye) and SAR (ALOS-1/2 PALSAR) remote-sensing data coupled with field measurements...
The study of forest above-ground biomass (AGB) for estimating the carbon stock in each tree is important, as it is well established that the emission of carbon is the largest factor affecting today’s climate.
We support regional transboundary programmes through partnership with regional partner institutions, facilitate the exchange of experience, and serve as a regional knowledge hub. We strengthen networking among regional and global centres of
Earth Observation for Climate Change Resilient Mountain Communities
Open burning is common in the HKH and a convenient way for farmers to eliminate of large quantities of crop residue. This practice also serves to prepare fields for the next crop cycle – wheat in spring and rice in summer.
Thematic Training Courses
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), in partnership with Google Earth Engine Outreach, will conduct a four-day training workshop on the Google Earth Engine (GEE) platform at its headquarters in Kathmandu, Nepal,
Mountain Environment Regional Information System
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
Using spaceborne SAR in synergy with other methods for forest above-ground biomass assessment in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) Region
Bangladesh and ICIMOD has been working in the area of capacity building, institutional strengthening, internships, research and demonstration, and regional and international workshops and conferences, among other activities.
An international team of experts supported by ICIMOD also examined the condition of Nepal’s most dangerous glacial lakes. Some members of the Task Force undertook a special assessment of the Langtang valley...
First ever air quality monitoring for Chitwan National Park
Land degradation is common across the Hindu Kush Himalayan region, but surrounding countries lack proper documentation and modelling to properly assess the situation. The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is
