EcoHimal, the Society for Cooperation Alps – Himalaya is an international non-government organization based in Salzburg and with a sister organization in Kathmandu, Nepal. We work together with local grassroots initiatives and communities since 1992 to improve the living conditions of the local population in the Himalayan region.
