River Basin and Cryosphere

Arun B Shrestha
The consultative meeting – jointly organised by National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Authority (NDRRMA) and ICIMOD – aims to refine the methodology of the risk assessment framework drafted by ICIMOD and partners. We will have experts from a variety of thematic groups (and from different countries) discussing and providing inputs. In doing so, they will be guided by the following action-related questions and seeking answers and solutions from a multi-hazard perspective
Although framed largely as a conference, the event will be conducted in both a conference format (for sharing knowledge and information) and a workshop format (for discussion on the methodology).
Our broad objective is to develop a multi-hazard risk and loss and damage framework for the HKH region.
Specific objectives include:
