SERVIR-HKH

SERVIR connects space to villages by generating geospatial information, including Earth observation data from satellites, geographic information systems, and predictive models useful to developing countries. SERVIR is a joint development initiative of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), working in partnership with leading regional organizations around the globe. SERVIR helps those most in need of tools for managing climate risks and land use. SERVIR’s activities in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region are implemented by ICIMOD under the flagship of SERVIR-HKH. 

With an overarching goal to improve environmental management and resilience to climate change, SERVIR‐Himalaya has been able to augment the capacity of ICIMOD as a regional resource centre to integrate earth observation and geospatial technologies for improved developmental decision making in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region.

SERVIR-HKH draws upon the professional, technological, and entrepreneurial expertise of different SERVIR hubs.

Objectives

  • Strengthen the ability of governments and other development stakeholders to incorporate Earth observations and geospatial technology into decision making
  • Advance free and open information sharing through national and regional platforms and collaborations
  • Develop innovative, user-tailored analyses, decision-support products, and trainings that advance scientific understanding and deliver information to those who need it
