11Aug to 11Aug
Himalayan University Consortium Nepal Members’ Meeting

Membership of the Consortium has grown in recent years, from 33 in the beginning of 2016 to 61 by the end of 2017.

Since early 2018, the HUC has been consulting members and experts to draft its first Strategy and Action Plan (2018–2022).

Given the increase in the number of HUC members in Nepal, as well as the country’s involvement in the Consortium’s activities, HUC membership should expand in Nepal to boost national and regional collaboration for research and education in sustainable mountain development. The Himalayan University Consortium Nepal Members’ Meeting has been organized to this end.
