The Kailash Consortium of Academics and Researchers for Experience-sharing (Kailash CAFE) is a digital platform that brings together researchers working across multiple disciplines within the Kailash Sacred Landscape. The UN has declared 2022 as the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development. In line with this, Kailash CAFE 2.0 will highlight thematic topics related to mountain ecosystems and sustainable development of the Kailash Sacred Landscape. Special focus will be on the themes of regional cooperation, biocultural diversity, and post-pandemic recovery.
The Kailash CAFE (20-23 April 2021) brought together more than one hundred people from ten countries. Researchers presented on the themes of landscapes and biodiversity, ecosystem services and sustainable livelihoods, culture and heritage, technology, and gender and governance. Some of the research presented were published in a special issue of the journal Environmental Challenges.
The Kailash CAFE 2.0 is open to all stakeholders working or residing in the Kailash Sacred Landscape. Technical presentations will be limited to research conducted in the landscape as an entity, or a combination of the following sites: Pulan County in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China; Pithoragarh District in Uttarakhand State, India; and Baitadi, Bajhang, Darchula and Humla districts of Nepal.
The Kailash Sacred Landscape Conservation and Development Initiative (KSLCDI) promotes transboundary cooperation and sustainable development in the Kailash landscape. This landscape is spread over 31,000 sq.km across Pulan County of the Tibet Autonomous Region of China, Pithoragarh District of India, and four districts (Baitadi, Bajhang, Darchula and Humla) of western Nepal. The KSLCDI focuses on three components: transboundary cooperation, ecosystems management at scale, and resilient livelihoods.
