  • Increase provision of high quality user-tailored data, tools and applications, and models to support informed decision-making

About SERVIR

A joint development initiative of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), SERVIR works in partnership with leading regional organizations worldwide to help developing countries use information provided by earth observing satellites and geospatial technologies for managing climate risks and land use.
SERVIR empowers decision-makers with tools, products, and services to act locally on climate-sensitive issues such as disasters, agriculture, water, and ecosystems and land use.

SERVIR is improving awareness, increasing access to information and supporting analysis to help people in Africa, the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH), the Lower Mekong, and Mesoamerica manage challenges in the areas of food security, water resources, land use change, and natural disasters.

SERVIR Hindu Kush Himalaya

SERVIR Hindu Kush Himalaya (SERVIR-HKH) is implemented by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in its regional member countries, prioritizing activities in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan.

SERVIR-HKH is an initiative under ICIMOD’s Mountain Environment Regional Information System (MENRIS) Regional Programme, which caters to the specific needs of regional member countries in addressing different aspects of environmental degradation and climate change impacts. SERVIR-HKH strengthens ICIMOD to better work with national institutions in the HKH.

The SERVIR Global Network

SERVIR consists of four regional hubs: SERVIR Eastern & Southern Africa, SERVIR Hindu Kush Himalaya (SERVIR-HKH), SERVIR Mekong, and SERVIR West Africa. The hubs work closely with each other and affiliated USAID missions, project partners, and NASA.
