Spine Chilling Threats :
Many hilly communities in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region survive under the threat of avalanches, landslides, earthquakes and floods. The regional member nations of ICIMOD are amongst the most vulnerable nations on the planet prone to natural calamities, specifically those caused by climate and weather, and these often results in disasters jeopardizing socio-economic progress of the counties.

Brutal Facts :
More than 2000 lives, approximately, are sacrificedin the region because of different types of natural disasters. These mishaps are specifically envisioned in the HKH where melting of glaciers is the most unprecedented happening which is leading to eroding ofhabitats and ecosystem services. Globalization and changing climate will have a severe impact on the firmness of our vulnerable mountain ecosystems and thebread and butter of mountaincommunities.

Devastating Effects :
Changing rainfall paradigm and melting glaciers are creating new vulnerabilities with mounting susceptibility offloods and droughts that stretch beyond national fences. While mountain communities are particularly prone to such threats, these changes are going to impact the entire river basins around the whole province. The need has arisen to establish resilient communities in the mountains to reduce vulnerabilities not only of the mountain individual but also in the plains.

Corrective Measures :
Across the world, equilibrium of structural and nonstructural measures needs to be maintained to combat this disaster. Beforehand warning systems,hazard mapping, building awareness and development of capabilities for enhanced preparedness are immediate steps that are the need of the hour.

What is ICIMOD
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development is a local knowledge development and learning institute comprising of eight regional member nations of the HKH. These countries are Afghanistan, China, Myanmar, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan Kathmandu, India, and Bangladesh.

Objectives of ICIMOD
ICIMOD aims to enable mountain communities to accept and understand thesechanges, adapt to it, and make the optimum utilization of new opportunities, while facing these disasters.

Gist :
Institutional consolidation andpotential building of our supporting institutions is extremely imperative to contribute to potential disaster risk management. Byworking hand in hand with national and international counterparts, and by mutually bifurcating different roles and liabilities among us,we can become strength and can achieve ICIMOD’s new vision of a safer and better prepared region to face natural disasters.
