ICIMOD case studies on mountain biodiversity

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) recently wrote to us highlighting an initiative they have taken on whereby they are collecting case-studies on mountain biodiversity-related initiatives (with focus on success stories) in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) region.   They already have on file some excellent case studies from China, India and Nepal, however they are very keen to hear from the other five HKH countries, namely Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, and Pakistan.

If you know of, or are actively involved in a study that has been implemented somewhat successfully in a mountain area of one or more of the above mentioned eight HKH countries, please lete ICIMOD know. Please note: the initiative can be a project or programme or even an activity or a set of activities, either completed or ongoing.

The deadline for submitting case studies has been extended till 10 September 2010.   The top four case studies, as judged by a panel of experts, will be awarded small cash prizes and certificates. ICIMOD will be publishing a book of  selected case studies later in the year to mark this International Year of Biological Diversity.

For details, including the conditions for participation as well as the template of the case study (find attached), please click here.
