Climate Alliance of Himalayan Communities

Authentic Voice of Mountain Communities seeking support for sustainable development in Nepal’s Himalayas.

 It is not that the world is not aware about the problems of the Himalayas. We even get financial and technical assistance, but most of the funds provided by the world for the mountain people are spent without our knowledge in such places that barely touch our problems. CAHC unites people and helps to bring the authentic voice of the Himalayas to the regional, national and international levels.

 Himalayan Communities of Nepal are hardly seen progressing towards modern day development. Many organizations and institutions work for improving the lives of people of Himalayas but do not seem that impactful because they cannot understand the roots of all problems faced as the locals do. Therefore, this Alliance brings the civil society members and leaders of all Himalayan districts to work together.

Climate Alliance for Himalayan Communities (CAHC) is an alliance of community leaders from all the mountain districts of Nepal’s Himalayas. It is a network of civil society members from all Himalayan districts of Nepal. CAHC, started as an HCI program is now registered as an independent not-for-profit non-governmental organization with appropriate agencies of the government of Nepal.

CAHC carries the authentic voice of the climate change threatened mountain dwellers to national, regional and international platforms. CAHC carries the data/information available with research organizations and knowledge centers to mountain communities to help them effectively deal with climate change and other development challenges. CAHC will soon be reaching out to several global personalities to sit on its international advisory board in order to secure financial, technological and human resources to help the Himalayan communities.

HCI is the lead implementation partner of CAHC.
