Valuating ecosystem services in Koshi River Basin
The Koshi River basin is a transboundary basin shared by China, India, and Nepal. The river originates on the high altitude Tibetan Plateau and passes through eastern Nepal and northern Bihar in India before joining the Ganges.
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
Within a short span the project results showed the vast potential for saving fuel and greenhouse gas emissions, reducing indoor air pollution, and freeing up time spent in collecting fuel, especially by women, for productive activities.
Several technologies like solar photovoltaic home sets, solar lights, solar cookers and improved cook stoves are popular among the people in these project areas. The study recommends upscaling and replication of the successes of the project to other
More than 160 researchers, policy makers, journalists, students, and practitioners from across Pakistan, as well as abroad, working on issues related to climate change and adaptation in the Indus River basin participated in dynamic discussions at
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

Pastoralism and agro-pastoralism
The total glacier area in the greater Himalayan region is subject to large uncertainties and problems of geographic delineation. According to the recent inventory of glacier prepared by ICIMOD there are 18,495 glaciers...
Climate models provide opportunities to understand the future climate evolution, including the trends and variabilities. General Circulation Models (GCMs) indicate that rising concentrations of greenhouse gases will have significant implications on
ICIMOD, in collaboration with the Mountain Agricultural Research Centre and WWF-Pakistan, organized a two-day ‘National Experts’ Symposium on Ecosystem Based Adaptation: Practices, Challenges and Opportunities in Pakistan’ from 15–16
