The UN-SPIDER Regional Support Office in Nepal, ICIMOD, reached an agreement with the Asian Institute of Technology and Management to mainstream the development of geospatial applications.

The new collaboration was announced at the end of the year by ICIMOD and will support the efforts to fight climate change impacts in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region. The main goal is to share relevant information and strengthen efforts for creating more effective tools and applications for the National Geospatial Platform. As part of the one-year project, both institutions will organize several training and workshop events.
