ICIMOD Travel Grant to August 2019 Cryosphere Forum
This Travel Grant call is for attendees to ICIMOD’s upcoming International Forum on Cryosphere and Society: The Voice of the Hindu Kush Himalaya, to be held from 28 to 30 August 2019 in Kathmandu, Nepal. It will serve as a platform for discussions on the emerging and evolving topic of the cryosphere’s contributions, its relevance in the HKH context, the research developing in the space, and pathways towards increasing the resilience of HKH communities.
Following the very positive reception of The Hindu Kush Himalaya Assessment: Mountains, Climate Change, Sustainability and People, published in February 2019, media coverage revealed widespread international interest in the state and fate of the cryosphere in the HKH region. In this forum, we intend to build on the key findings and recommendations of the Cryosphere Chapter (Chapter 7) of the HKH Assessment, address how they are related to the cryosphere's contributions, and assess their sustainability in the region.Read More
