Himalaya project (HimalWet)
This project aimed to develop an information base for wise use of Himalayan high altitude wetlands through integrated water resource management. An inventory of high altitude wetlands based on remote sensing data was developed together with a system of vulnerability assessment mapping. Based on these, a concept for an integrated management strategy for the region was also developed.
This project was carried out in Nepal, India, China and Bhutan through our offices in India and China.
Our main partner is the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD).
