International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD)

ICIMOD is the first and, so far, only international centre devoted to integrated mountain development. The primary objectives of ICIMOD are to help promote the development of an economically and environmentally sound mountain ecosystem and to improve the living standards of mountain populations, especially in the Hindu Kush-Himalayas (HKH) Region. In pursuing its mandate, ICIMOD works mainly at the interface between research and development and acts as a facilitator for generating new mountain-specific knowledge of relevance to mountain development.

The Asia-Pacific Mountain Network (APMN): is an ongoing Swiss-funded project of ICIMOD, whose mission is to generate, aggregate, and disseminate knowledge for sustainable development of upland and mountain areas of Asia/Pacific as well as to facilitate networking amongst the members and subscribers of this knowledge network.
