Unified systems

We connect the landscape

There is strength in partnerships, and we are both a bridge and a catalyst here.
We work across levels, organizations, and countries facilitating regional cooperation, strengthening inter-governmental relations, and bringing member countries together.

For over three decades, we have worked tirelessly across the HKH to create a prosperous and environmentally secure region where people thrive. We have done so with the support of an incredible network of partners and peers who’ve helped us connect people, policy, and science. Our partners give us more presence on the ground where real impact and real change is made for the mountain people of the HKH.

We work with a wide variety of institutions forging partnerships that strengthen development, strategy and policy, operation and research, and knowledge, science, and networks. Working together with regional and international partners, we are committed to bringing about transformative change in the HKH by improving environmental conditions and strengthening the livelihoods of mountain and downstream communities.


We are a partnership organization working with and through an extended and diversified network.

Expanding the landscape
