    Niranjan Bista, from SEN participates in ICIMOD Knowledge Forum “Climate Change in the Himalayan Region and the Way Forward” on 4th September 2011 with Dr Rajendra Pachauri , Director General of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    At the Knowledge Forum, Dr Pachauri speaks about climate change in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) region. The HKH has been identified as a major data gap region, owing to the fact that routine data collection in mountainous regions is often hampered by highly inaccessible terrain, harsh climatic conditions, and lack of investments in long-term scientific research.
