ICIMOD photo contest: Mountain biodiversity

As part of the celebrations of the International Year of Biodiversity, the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is marking the occasion with a Photo Contest on the biodiversity of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region and its role in people’s lives.

The photo contest also reflects the theme for the International Day for Biological Diversity 22 May 2010 ‘Biodiversity, Development and Poverty Alleviation’. The aim is to raise awareness of the vital role that mountain biodiversity plays in sustaining life in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region and beyond.

The contest has 5 main categories : 1) Mountain agrobiodiversity, 2) Livelihoods and ecosystem services related to biodiversity, 3) Women and mountain biodiversity, 4) Indigenous/ traditional knowledge and use associated with mountain biodiversity, and 5) Threats to mountain biodiversity.

The photo contest is open to everyone and it starts today until the 10 May 2010. For more information about terms & conditions, or if you would like to submit your photo: click here
