A new milestone in the Swiss-Tajik scientific collaboration at the service of glaciers
Following the acknowledgement the Tajikistan-led UN initiative declaring 2025 as the International year of glacier preservation, the National Academy of Sciences of Tajikistan (NAST) and the Swiss Polar Institute (SPI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 10 May 2023. This event paves the way to new synergies and collaboration opportunities between Tajik and Swiss early career and senior researchers.
The PAMIR Flagship Initiative is at the core of this collaboration as the framework for the sharing of resources and mountain glacier infrastructures, as well as for the organisation of various joint outreach events, such as co-organised conferences, exhibitions and workshops focused on mountain cryosphere, hydrology and climate change.
