The Geospatial Solutions Theme:
The vastness and remoteness of much of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region has often been a barrier to development and research. ICIMOD has worked to breach this barrier by developing and institutionalizing remote sensing and geographic information systems as a tool to support development policies and assist science-based decision making at multiple levels. In particular, it has worked with both international and regional partners to provide access to data and information, integrate analysis and modelling, and develop interactive mapping and spatial visualization. Consequently, ICIMOD is now internationally regarded as a regional resource centre for geoinformation and earth observation application with a specific mountain focus. ICIMOD is also committed to capacity building in this area; the regional member countries have benefited from ICIMOD’s short courses and training programmes and have gone on to establish geographic information system (GIS) hubs in their own countries.
The Cryosphere Initiative ICIMOD’s Cryosphere Initiative collaborates with its partners to study the importance of snow, ice, and permafrost. The initiative and its implementing partners in the region have established a Cryosphere Monitoring Programme to assess cryosphere water resources, cryosphere-related disaster risks, and scenarios for future water availability using an integrated approach of field measurements, remote sensing, and modelling.
Together with the regional and international partners, the initiative works to enhance the capacity of institutions in ICIMOD’s regional member countries to increase scientific knowledge of the cryosphere and to co-produce and share relevant data and knowledge about the cryosphere. The work contributes to the development of effective measures and policies for water resources and risk management in the HKH.
