About

As an institution, ICIMOD serves as an open house for knowledge initiatives on sustainable mountain development and our information and knowledge are communicated through publications, databases, multimedia, and web content, all of which are available globally online.

Looking to the future, new communications and interactive knowledge sharing tools are quickly becoming the global norm and are providing further momentum to knowledge management efforts. We seek to keep up-to-date about these global innovations while remaining relevant to the socio-cultural context of the region.

Means of knowledge sharing include:

  • promoting capacity development at many levels, including among youth, most importantly to help partners and policy makers transform the results of research into information that can be used for improved decision making and practical action;
  • distilling and communicating relevant messages for action towards sustainable mountain development at all levels; and
  • encouraging partners to be actively involved in the knowledge development cycle.
