Hindu Kush Himalaya

SERVIR Hindu Kush Himalaya helps improve environmental management and resilience in critical areas like food security, water resources management, disaster resilience, and sustainable land and ecosystem management in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region.

The hub was established in 2010 at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Implementer: ICIMOD is a regional intergovernmental learning and knowledge sharing center serving the eight regional member countries of the Hindu Kush Himalayas (HKH). With the increasing influence of globalization and climate change on the stability of fragile mountain ecosystems and the livelihoods of mountain people, ICIMOD aims to assist mountain people to understand these changes, adapt to them, and make the most of new opportunities, while addressing upstream-downstream issues.

SERVIR Hindu Kush Himalaya strengthens ICIMOD’s capabilities as an established regional resource center on geospatial information and Earth observation applications for the HKH region. Stakeholders range from decision-makers at the regional level addressing transboundary issues, to national governments, scientists, students, the general public, and development practitioners working in the region.

Countries: Bangladesh, Nepal, and Pakistan.
