The Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) is known for its beautiful landscape, rich biodiversity and forests, numerous rivers and streams, and a great diversity of traditions and culture.
Our work in the Indian Himalayan Region is focused on pollinators, sustainable agriculture, forests and ecosystem services. Here is an overview of the projects and programmes implemented over the years:
“The collaborative scientific research of G.B. Pant National Institute of Himalayan Environment & Sustainable Development and Earthwatch Institute India has made an important contribution to our institute’s work to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate their efficacy for conservation of natural resources, and to ensure environmentally sound development in the Indian Himalayan Region.
Our collaborative project is also contributing towards the objectives of the National Mission for Sustaining the Himalayan Ecosystem (NMSHE) as well as towards the Sustainable Development Goals on the promotion of Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Action through peoples’ participation in eco-conservation.”
