The International Center for Integrated Mountain Development, ICIMOD, is a regional intergovernmental learning and knowledge sharing centre serving the eight regional member countries of the Hindu Kush Himalayas – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan – and based in Kathmandu, Nepal. The mission of the center is to enable and facilitate the equitable and sustainable well-being of the people of the Hindu Kush-Himalayas by supporting sustainable mountain development through active regional cooperation.

As a champion of biodiversity conservation and sustainable development, we have worked on different conservation projects in the past, like Hainan Gibbon conservation, forest rehabilitation in Northwest China, forest conservation by promoting biogas toilet in Yunnan, wetland and tree conservations in Hong Kong.
