How does RMS work?

RMS combines the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development with climate change adaptation, resilience, and preparedness for future risks to form an integrated approach to resilient mountain development. The initiative adopts the working definition of resilience as “the ability of an individual, community, or a socio-ecological system to not only overcome stress, shock, or setback (recover or bounce back) but develop capabilities to move forward to a condition or state that can help transcend to a better state”.

The RMS framework works within three major dimensions of resilience – climate resilience, socioeconomic resilience, and future resilience – categorized into nine sub-dimensions (Figure 1).

Where do we work?

RMS works in ICIMOD’s regional member countries to address their vulnerability to climate change and socio-economic changes. The initiative implements its activities through direct engagement, leveraging of funds, capacity building, and knowledge sharing.

Who do we work with?

The RMS initiative works with partners in these four categories:

  • Implementing partners: Carrying out activities on the ground and promoting uptake of solutions at the national level and beyond
  • Strategic/policy partners: Engaging with government-supported national programmes,  working with the media and knowledge centres to support regional engagement, and enhancing global outreach through engagement with multilateral processes and global think tanks
  • Private sector: Diversifying livelihood opportunities through business modalities and value chain development and promoting financial sustainability of project activities
  • Knowledge partners: Scientific and technical backstopping through action research, knowledge sharing, and policy engagement.
