Position Overview:

The Remote Sensing and Geo Information Analyst position provides an opportunity to leverage satellite data and geospatial technology to address the region’s critical environmental challenges, including climate change, natural disasters, and ecosystem degradation. This is an excellent prospect to harness your expertise in Earth Observation (EO) and climate modelling, pioneer innovative solutions for managing ecosystems, mitigating carbon emissions, and addressing other environmental concerns.

The Analyst will be working under ICIMOD’s Action Area D (AAD): Restoring and Regenerating Landscapes, supporting initiatives in restoring and regenerating landscapes, and facilitating improved land management practices and sustainable development efforts. 

The Analyst will also support the SERVIR-HKH Chief of Party through the SERVIR-HKH Initiative. SERVIR is a global network of hubs that use satellite data and geospatial technology to address critical environmental and development challenges. SERVIR-HKH is a joint initiative of ICIMOD, USAID and NASA working on developing information services using EO and climate modelling technology. The Analyst’s reach will therefore extend beyond the HKH region, contributing to international endeavours aimed at leveraging technology for sustainable development while also empowering local communities to effectively address environmental challenges. 

Background

About ICIMOD


The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region stretches 3,500 km across Asia, spanning eight countries – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan. Encompassing high-altitude mountain ranges, mid-hills, and plains, the zone is vital for the food, water, and energy security of up to two billion people and is a habitat for countless irreplaceable species. It is also acutely fragile – and frontline to the impacts of the triple planetary crisis of climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss. 

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), based in Kathmandu, Nepal, is an international organisation established in 1983, that is working to make this critical region greener, more inclusive and climate resilient. For more information, read our and explore our .
