Proceedings of the international symposium: Benefiting from earth observation - Bridging the data gap for adaptation to climate change in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region

This publication contains a summary report of the proceedings of the symposium and three related pre and post-symposium events: Youth Forum, Workshop on Space-based Information for Disaster Preparedness and Risk Management, and Inception Workshop for SERVIR-Himalaya.

The symposium aimed at (i) building synergies with national, regional, and international initiatives for the sharing of Earth observation data in order to develop a regional database and relevant information products; (ii) promoting regional cooperation among ICIMOD’s regional member countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan) to foster development of a Himalayan spatial data infrastructure (H-SDI) to support climate change adaptation; (iii) promoting a common approach and methodology to develop key Earth observation applications in the areas of climate change adaptation for improved scientific knowledge and understanding; and (iv) providing a regional platform for the strengthening of international networking through mutual sharing and learning.
