Brijesh Mainali, researcher in Department of Built Environment and Energy Technology at Linnaeus University, has been one of the lead authors in one of the chapters in the book “The Hindu Kush Himalaya Assessment”, recently published by Springer-Nature. The chapter is called “Meeting Future Energy Needs in the Hindu Kush Himalaya”.
“This chapter critically scrutinizes the energy outlook of the region in its diverse aspects, including demand-and-supply patterns; national policies, programmes, and institutions; emerging challenges and opportunities; and possible transformational pathways for sustainable energy” says Brijesh Mainali.
This is a prestigious assignment report with 16 chapters engaging more than 100 authors from all over the world.
The assignment covers sustainable development issues of Hindu Kush region (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan). This is targeted for policy makers, academics and researchers interested in sustainable development of Hindu Kush region and an essentially important resource for contributors to global assessments such as the IPCC reports.
