The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is a regional intergovernmental learning and knowledge-sharing centre serving the eight regional member countries of the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH): Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan.
Working in partnership with regional and international organizations, ICIMOD aims to influence policy and practices to meet environmental and livelihood challenges emerging in the HKH. ICIMOD provides a platform for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers from the region and around the globe to generate and share knowledge, support evidence-based decision making, and encourage regional cooperation. ICIMOD seeks to enable sustainable and resilient mountain development for improved and equitable livelihoods through knowledge generation and regional cooperation.
The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Capability for the Hindu Kush Himalaya (REEECH) Initiative at ICIMOD works to expand the adoption of green energy solutions among HKH communities and enterprises.
REEECH is the first centre with a clear mountain focus that functions as a regional hub and think tank under the umbrella of the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centres (GN-SEC) to accelerate universal energy access in the HKH region and advance mountain energy issues on the global sustainable development and climate agenda.
REEECH fosters South–South cooperation for improved access to decentralized sustainable energy solutions for HKH communities and actively promotes the scaling up of climate resilient sustainable energy markets, industries, and innovation customized for the off-grid mountainous areas of the HKH.
