The datasets were developed under the Hindu Kush Karakoram Pamir Landscape (HKPL) and the Koshi Basin Initiative. The datasets can also be accessed from the corresponding initiative websites. Data layers from the Koshi Basin Initiative can be visualized in the Koshi Basin Information System (KBIS).

ICIMOD’s RDS acts as a central data repository for different thematic areas in the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) and provides easy access to these data. The portal supports free search text, and advanced search based on the title, abstract, keyword, or category, or within a user-defined geographic extent.

The RDS is an initiative and is housed under ICIMOD’s Mountain Environment Regional Information System (MENRIS) programme. The RDS has put in place ICIMOD’s Data Sharing Policy, data and metadata standards, and necessary hardware and software infrastructure. The Data Sharing Policy facilitates data sharing in the region and among the global community, enabling data use beyond the original research, and has been aligned with the philosophy of open and free access to scientific information and knowledge.
