Forestry-related climate targets and measures in the Hindu Kush Himalaya: Opportunities and challenges for climate action

  • Pradyumna JB Rana

  • Summary

We present a synthesis of the commitments from climate-related national documents such as the NDCs and other climate related documents developed by the eight HKH countries. We highlight their commitments

around forests and how they create opportunities for achieving climate targets and net zero goals as communicated to UNFCCC during COP26. We hope to draw the attention of the international community to the need to support regional collaborative actions amongst the HKH countries through strengthening other development assistance to the eight countries for cumulative climate action in the region as outlined in our HKH Call to Action.
