The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is a regional knowledge development and learning centre serving the eight regional member countries of the Hindu Kush-Himalayas (HKH) – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan. The centre is working to develop an economically and environmentally sound mountain ecosystem to improve the living standards of mountain populations - now, and for the future. In line with its current Strategic Framework, ICIMOD is strengthening its capacity to develop new approaches to meet the growing challenges in the region posed by climate change and globalisation.
Environmental Change and Ecosystem Services (ECES) is one of ICIMOD's three strategic programmes. The Programme focuses on strategy and policy issues in relation to natural resources, with a clear focus on ecosystem services and increasing benefits to mountain people and the downstream population.
The Programme Manager is responsible for leading the overall ECES Programme including ensuring the quality, integration, planning, and implementation of ICIMOD activities in the regional member countries. The Programme Manager is expected to be familiar with the international research agenda and practice, and aware of the strategic issues related to ecosystem services particularly in the HKH region.
