International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Kathmandu, Nepal has hosted two high school interns since 2013.

Started in 1984, ICIMOD enables sustainable and resilient mountain development for improved and equitable livelihoods through knowledge and regional cooperation.

ICIMOD is working to develop an economically and environmentally sound mountain ecosystem to improve the living standards of mountain populations and to sustain vital ecosystem services for the billions of people living downstream now, and for the future.

Interns at ICIMOD work alongside renowned international researchers and experts - like Dr. Aditi Mukherji - in the fields and villages in the Kathmandu Valley and its three main administrative units: Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur.

The students have the opportunity to travel around Nepal with their host families and colleagues to visit Kathmandu and famous landmarks like Bhaktapur Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
