Through our Higher Education programme, our aim is to develop the next generation professionals in the fields of Climate Change Adaptation and Himalayan Periglacial research.

Our Higher Education programme enables Nepali and UK students to conduct research alongside academics and sector professionals in hard to reach and remote Himalayan communities.

To achieve this aim, our objectives include:

  1. Teaching Nepali research students about the Periglacial environment (no university in Nepal teaches periglacial/permafrost science at present);
  2. Enabling Nepali and UK students to conduct detailed research into Climate Change Adaptation strategies and to gain experience alongside Development professionals from our partner NGOs;
  3. Facilitating placements and apprenticeships for Agricultural studies students in our project locations.
