The Government of Nepal has given high importance to ensuring food security for all its citizens, and recognizes food sovereignty as a basic human right. The core elements of food security are availability, access and utilization.
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), together with the Global Forest Observations Initiative (GFOI), the US SilvaCarbon and SERVIR programme, is organizing the second GFOI Capacity Building...

The Robotics Association of Nepal (RAN) and the Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA), in partnership with the United States Embassy in Nepal and the International Centre for Mountain Development (ICIMOD), are jointly organizing the Miss Tech 2017 programme.
Within the framework of the global SERVIR program, the overall objective of SERVIR-HKH is to increase sustainable use of Earth observation information and geospatial technology in development decision-making in the Hindu Kush Himalaya.

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), in partnership with the Institute of Remote Sensing, Jahangirnagar University (IRS-JU), will conduct a five-day training workshop on the Google Earth Engine (GEE) platform at the university campus in Dhaka, Bangladesh, under its SERVIR Hindu Kush Himalaya (SERVIR-HKH) Initiative.
The northern region of Bangladesh has been facing increasing agricultural droughts which can lead to reduce the productivity of farming communities, especially where irrigation is not available. Climate change projections also suggest a future decrease in precipitation in the dry season, with uncertainties for the spatial location of precipitation in the future monsoon season.
The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) is the highest mountain range in the world. It provides ecosystem goods and services to about 1.5 billion people living in the region and downstream areas. The region is recognized as one of the most vulnerable ecosystems in the world, due to climate change and rapid social transformations.
National policy and legal frameworks on the use of Earth observation data and geospatial technologies are very important to ensure sustainable environmental management and improved resilience to climatic anomalies. In this context, ICIMOD is organizing a policy workshop on sustainable use of Earth observation data and geospatial technologies for policy/decision making in Afghanistan.
The regional reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is working with ICIMOD regional member countries (RMCs) to support them in their REDD readiness phase. The focus of REDD+ collaboration is capacity development and technical assistance through the implementation of the South-South learning platform in the region.
This training will focus on the use of earth observation data and geospatial technologies for water resource management in Afghanistan. Training materials and hands-on exercises have been specifically tailored for Afghanistan. The training will cover basic concepts of water resource management, theoretical and practical understanding of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information system (GIS).
