Climate Alliance of Himalayan Communities

Himalayan communities are organized through the civil society organization "Climate Alliance of Himalayan Communities" (CAHC) which acts as a common platform for the members of Himalayan communities across Nepal. CAHC is a legally registered organization with the appropriate authorities of the Government of Nepal. Its executive board comprises community leaders from most of the mountain districts that were affected by the 2015 earthquake. Each executive committee member has created a sub-committee of 15-25 community leaders in their respective areas. In the wake of the earthquake, CAHC is quickly expanding its network of community leaders in some of the unrepresented districts.
