A regional consultation workshop on programme development for Karakoram-Pamir-Wakhan Landscape Initiative jointly organised by the Wakhan Corridor Initiative and the Karakoram Pamir Landscape (KPL) Initiative was held in Kathmandu 7-11 December 2015 with support of the Strategic Programme Monitoring and Evaluation (SPM&E) unit of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). The consultation’s objective was to design a new initiative programme involving transboundary conservation and development for landscape involving Afghanistan, China, Pakistan and Tajikistan, and to merge the two initiatives into one to better guid future collaborations among related partners.

More than 50 participants from related countries, regional research and development agencies, international consultants and ICIMOD attended the workshop. Through five days of information sharing and discussions, guided by the ICIMOD SPM&E unit using theory of change and impact pathway analysis, workshop participants agreed upon the vision, impacts, outcomes, outputs and indicators of the initiative. A monitoring and evaluation plan was also developed identifying priority activities for 2016. The completion of this workshop is a big step forward for the ICIMOD Transboundary Landscape Initiative. The programme document developed at the workshop will be used by ICIMOD and its partners to develop and implement future collaborative activities for the western part of the HKH region.
