  3. Resources from ICIMOD
    The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development
    (ICIMOD), a regional knowledge development and learning centre
    serving the eight regional member countries of the Hindu Kush-

    sound mountain ecosystem to improve the living standards of
    mountain populations. You can download all of ICIMOD’s
    publications free-of-charge from ICIMOD Books online.
    Publications on climate change can be accessed directly via the
    climate change section. A publication on the impact of climate
    change in mountainous regions called “Mountains of the world –
    Ecosystem services in a time of global and climate change”
    published in 2010 can be downloaded here.

  5. The Klimaportal of the Swiss Forum for Climate and Global Change
    You could find document resources, bibliographies and very
    important statistics on factors as well as consequences of climate
    change, especially on snow conditions, on weather, on energy
    resources or on health. This website is a product of the Swiss

  9. The world glacier monitoring service collects standardised
    observations on changes (mass, volume, area, length) of glaciers
    over time (glacier fluctuations) as well as statistical information on
    the distribution of perennial surface ice (glacier inventories). Such
    data are high priority key variables in climate system monitoring.
    WGMS with UNEP publish reports on global Climate Change of
