    To mark World Environment Day 2015, ICIMOD is pleased to launch the ICT for Mountain Development Award 2015 on 5 June for the second consecutive year. The award recognises innovations, use and applications of Information and Communications Technology for Development (ICTD) that help to promote mountain development and environmental conservation. More details are given below and also available on our website at www.icimod.org/ict4md  

    ICT for Development is increasingly being used across the world, including in some parts of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region (HKH).
