Consultancy services to migrate the HUC website and portal to WordPress and develop plugins for existing functionalities
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is issuing this request for proposals regarding consultancy services to redevelop the Himalayan University Consortium (HUC) website in WordPress and develop plugins for different existing functionalities.
ICIMOD, based in Kathmandu, Nepal, is the leading institute for the study of the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH). An intergovernmental knowledge and development organisation with a focus on climate and environmental risks, green economies, and sustainable collective action, we have worked in our eight regional member countries – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan – since our foundation.
Entering our 40th year, ICIMOD is perfectly positioned to support the transformative action required for the HKH to face the challenges of the escalating effects of climate change, pollution, water insecurity, increased disaster risk, biodiversity loss, and widespread socioeconomic changes. We seek to raise our ambition to support the required transformative action to step up our engagement through to 2030.
About the Himalayan University Consortium
The Himalayan University Consortium (HUC) is a network of over 90 universities in the eight countries of the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) and beyond. It is HUC’s mandate to enable regional academic cooperation and to nurture the next generation of academics to lead sustainable mountain development. It works to strengthen the connections between the creation of knowledge and decision-makers, to create new opportunities for transdisciplinary and transboundary research collaboration and to build the field of mountain-specific research. The HUC core values are mountain focus, inter- and trans-disciplinarity, diversity, and shared leadership.
HUC is approaching 100 full members from the HKH region (including ICIMOD) and 19 associate members from outside the region. HUC operates an interactive online web portal, with over 600 users. The portal is an integrated system for information management of its members and individual associates and enhances communication among them.
