The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD)
ICIMOD is the first International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development. It was established to serve the HKH through an ambitious mandate that gave it the responsibility to mobilize knowledge and disseminate it, along with skills necessary for its use. The acquisition and dissemination of relevant knowledge related to mountain development in the Hindu Kush–Himalayas is ICIMOD’s most important activity. ICIMOD’s statutes guide the Centre in the handling of knowledge and in its role as a knowledge bank, trainer, advisor, and advocate for the Hindu Kush–Himalayas and the populations inhabiting them.
