International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in collaboration with the Lanzhou University organized a two-day workshop to understand the interlinkages of six protected areas in the Hindu Kush Karakoram Pamir transboundary landscape (HKPL) shared between Afghanistan, China, Pakistan, and Tajikistan, which was held 13–14 July 2017. Thirty participants from different faculty of the university attended. The workshop objectives were to introduce HKPL to new partners/stakeholders and initiate collaborative research in HKPL and enhance communication, interaction, and data-sharing platforms.

Existing knowledge and scientific work from the region on biodiversity, cultural heritage, tourism, rangeland assessment, and protected areas was shared by the participants to prioritize activities that would be undertaken in the protected areas of Hindu Kush Karakoram Pamir Landscape. The session on day one led to a decision to adopt a fixed methodology to conduct socioeconomic survey and collect information on humanity, social sciences, natural resources, physical geography, and climate change. On day two, participants discussed methodology and a work plan for the scoping study.
