Conservation and Adaptation in Asia's High Mountain Landscapes and Communities Project

This project is working to facilitate technical and policy dialogue on high mountain landscape management in the face of climate change. This will help prepare communities to address key vulnerabilities to climate change, conserve snow leopards as a critical indicator of Asia’s high mountain landscape health, and provide practical and measurable demonstrations that advance a vision for water security and sustainable mountain development across Asia.

The principal objectives of this project include:

  • Promote climate-smart management of high mountain landscapes and snow leopard habitat for sustainable development
  • Improve transnational collaboration on climate change adaptation and snow leopard conservation in Asia’s high mountain landscapes.

Focus countries include six of the 12 known nations within the snow leopard's range, including Bhutan, India, the Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia, Nepal, and Pakistan.
