MOPE and ICIMOD conduct Seminar on 'Resilient Hindu Kush Himalaya'
Published     04 December, 2017

Resilience is the ability of communities and ecosystems to be prepared for shocks, recover from shocks, and “bounce forward” to emerge stronger than before. ICIMOD and its partners have been working on developing solutions for resilience building, promoting regional cooperation, and enhancing knowledge for sustainable mountain development. 

On topics ranging from disaster risk reduction to gender equity and building social capital, all the sessions held over the past four days repeated a theme of collective action for increasing the resilience of mountain communities in the HKH, where impacts from climate change, outmigration, and dwindling natural resources pose formidable challenges.
