Asian Institute of Technology and Management (AITM) joined hands with International Center for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) Nepal GIS Society, USAID and NASA to organize SERVIR-Himalayan Youth Forum during 16-20 December 2013 at its premise on the theme “Empowering youth with earth observation information for climate actions in Nepal”. Forty-three youths aged between 20 and 25 and representing different parts of Nepal participated in the event.

The youth forum was successful in inspiring the youth on geospatial science, earth observation, and its potential to address climate change issues; providing hands-on exercises with GIS software and GPS systems and online mapping resources; visualize or otherwise address climate change issues; develop a strong network of peers for mutual sharing and learning of experiences; and increase the visibility of SERVIR-Himalaya Initiative among youths in Nepal.
