International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development, ICIMOD,
is a regional knowledge development and learning centre serving the
eight regional member countries of the Hindu Kush-Himalayas –
Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and
Pakistan – and based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Globalisation and climate
change have an increasing influence 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. We support regional transboundary
through partnership with regional partner institutions, facilitate the
exchange of experience, and serve as a regional knowledge hub. We
strengthen networking among regional and global centres of excellence.
Overall, we are working to develop an economically and environmentally
sound mountain ecosystem to improve the living standards of mountain
populations and to sustain vital ecosystem services for the billions of
people living downstream
