ICIMOD is continuously making efforts to help its regional member countries (RMCs) gain from each other's experiences and best practices. Through consecutive phases of ICIMOD's development, India has been an active RMC, playing a lead role in formulation of the centre's institutional and programmatic strategies and action plans. Its contribution has gradually become more and more important and useful in the development of regional themes for action in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region (HKH). On 30 September 2011, a day's programme was organised to highlight the ICIMOD-India collaboration and further strengthen it. This booklet prepared for the occasion reflects on past efforts and achievements and identifies gaps to reorient the collaboration for enhanced action on the regional issues of mountains and their people.
