  • ICIMOD – ICT for Mountain Development Award 2018

    ICIMOD is pleased to announce a call for its ICT for Mountain Development Award for the fifth consecutive year. The award recognizes innovations, uses, and applications in Information and Communications Technology for Development (ICTD) that help promote mountain development and environmental conservation. Details, including the winners from previous years and their ICTD innovations are available on our website.

    ICT for Development is increasingly being used across the world, including in some parts of the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region which spans eight countries – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan. However, we do not yet have a comprehensive picture of its use, application, and proliferation in the mountain environment and development context. We hope that through this annual ICT for Mountain Development Award, we can learn more about its usage and application – where, how, and what is being done in the region to benefit mountain communities.
