ICIMOD Competition for Journalists: The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is organising a competition for journalists with a thematic focus on climate change in the Himalayas.

The general theme of the competition is ‘Climate Change in the Himalayas‘.

The newspapers, magazines or journals (in print format or online) in which the article appears will be categorised as follows:

  • International publications: newspapers, magazines, journals published in a country other than Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan
