520    This open access volume is the first comprehensive 
       assessment of the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region. It 
       comprises important scientific research on the social, 
       economic, and environmental pillars of sustainable 
       mountain development and will serve as a basis for 
       evidence-based decision-making to safeguard the 
       environment and advance people's well-being. The compiled 
       content is based on the collective knowledge of over 300 
       leading researchers, experts and policymakers, brought 
       together by the Hindu Kush Himalayan Monitoring and 
       Assessment Programme (HIMAP) under the coordination of the
       International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development 
       (ICIMOD). This assessment was conducted between 2013 and 
       2017 as the first of a series of monitoring and assessment
       reports, under the guidance of the HIMAP Steering 
       Committee: Eklabya Sharma (ICIMOD), Atiq Raman 
       (Bangladesh), Yuba Raj Khatiwada (Nepal), Linxiu Zhang 
       (China), Surendra Pratap Singh (India), Tandong Yao 
       (China) and David Molden (ICIMOD and Chair of the HIMAP 
       SC). This First HKH Assessment Report consists of 16 
       chapters, which comprehensively assess the current state 
       of knowledge of the HKH region, increase the understanding
       of various drivers of change and their impacts, address 
       critical data gaps and develop a set of evidence-based and
       actionable policy solutions and recommendations. These are
       linked to nine mountain priorities for the mountains and 
       people of the HKH consistent with the Sustainable 
       Development Goals. This book is a must-read for policy 
       makers, academics and students interested in this 
       important region and an essentially important resource for
       contributors to global assessments such as the IPCC
