On the basis of papers presented at the International Mountain Biodiversity Conference held in Kathmandu/NP in November 2008, the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) has published a brochure on biodiversity in mountain landscapes and climate change.
With its question-and-answer format and generous use of illustrations, the brochure presents a number of selected ideas, which are discussed by representatives of the eight countries of the Hindu Kush region of the Himalayas. The publication illustrates the need for co-operation in research and data capture to facilitate a more effective response to the impacts of climate change in this and other mountain ranges. The complete conference proceedings and the brochure are available on CD.
