Science applications

SERVIR-HKH uses data from a collection of Earth observing satellites, ground-based data and advanced geospatial information technology in innovative ways to help decision makers respond to environmental challenges in the Hindu Kush Himalaya. Applications and tools developed under the SERVIR-HKH initiative provide evidence for decision making in the region.

These applications and tools are available as dedicated services that can be classified under five thematic areas – agriculture and food security, air quality, water resources and hydro-climatic disasters, land cover and land use change and ecosystems and weather and climate.

All science applications developed under SERVIR-HKH are made available online on Mountain Geoportal. The Mountain Geoportal is ICIMOD’s designated space for all science applications, and hosts innovative and interactive web applications that provide dynamic visualization of spatial data and other geospatial information services.
