ICIMOD: Closer collaboration with Nepal Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Nepal, host of one of UN-SPIDER's Regional Support Offices, has signed an Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment (MoSTE) of Nepal.

The background of this closer collaboration are the joint efforts towards meeting the objectives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Nepal and the rest of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region.

MoSTE is the focal ministry of the government of Nepal for environmental matters. It serves as the focal point for the UNFCCC, UNEP and other multilateral environmental agreements and organizations.
