I work together with interdisciplinary teams across ICIMOD along with partners in HKH promoting gender equality and inclusive development, generating gender and social inclusive knowledge focusing on diversity and differential needs of women and men from diverse communities in the region. In the knowledge generation process, I help in designing study frameworks, research questions, guidelines, and data collection instruments, and also with analyses, report writing and sharing with wider audiences through networks and piloting at the ground level. Working with mountain women and poor and disadvantaged people, I seek to empower them through creating more awareness about sustainable mountain development.
