Consultative Workshop and Training on Range Resource Assessment through GIS and Remote Sensing in the Hindu Kush Himalayan Region
ICIMOD continued to support, coordinate and rally the broad regional and international teams in the ongoing post-disaster reconstruction and rehabilitation efforts of the Government of Nepal. The ICIMOD Task Force on Geo-hazards continued to map and
In recent years Nepal has been 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
ICIMOD’s relief works this week focused in Kavre district, particularly in climate smart village pilot sites under the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP)...
A training course titled “Application of Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for the Mapping and Monitoring of Glaciers” was organized in Afghanistan from 14-18 January 2017. The training was organized in response to the
Workshop and Training on Rangeland Resource Assessment through GIS and Remote Sensing in the Hindu Kush Himalayan Region
Thirty-eight participants—13 of them women—from Nepal and Kenya, convened for a four-day training workshop on the Google Earth Engine (GEE) platform in Kathmandu, Nepal. The participants were selected from an open call for applications that
Loss of glacier area was mostly observed below 5600ma.s.l. and was greater for clean-ice glaciers. The equilibrium-line altitude has shifted upward from 5170110ma.s.l. to 5350150ma.s.l. in the years 1980–2010.
Methodology and progress review workshop: Land use and land cover change, Erosion and Sedimentation assessment over the Koshi River basin
On 25 April 2015 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 struck Nepal near the historic town of Gorkha. The earthquake caused numerous landslides and triggered avalanches that caused widespread damage, although much less than what would be expected
Flood maps illustrating village-level inundation have the potential to support BSDMA in several community-level risk reduction activities. Such information is crucial to the government’s smooth response to flood management as waters continue to
Remote Sensing based Monitoring
The ICIMOD glacier inventories of Nepal in 2001 and 2011 revealed an increase of 17 per cent in the number of glaciers while the area decreased by 21 per cent. However, the data sources of these two inventories differ...
