Dhrupad Choudhury

For a little over two decades, Dr. Choudhury has been working among marginalized mountain communities of the Himalayas, initially as a researcher but later, progressively as a development practitioner. His focus of interest has spanned natural resource management, policy and market driven transformations, livelihood security and for the last few years, climate change adaptation and resilience building. His special areas of interest are Managing Transformations in Shifting Cultivation, with special focus on tenurial and access regimes and Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Building.

During his tenure in ICIMOD, Dr. Choudhury has worked on aspects of livelihoods security and approaches for enhancing adaptive capacities and resilience of mountain communities to socio-economic and climate change. As Regional Programme Manager, his work included fostering multi-stakeholder partnerships and engagement with policy makers for strengthening adaptation and resilience building. Currently, as the Chief, Scaling Operations, his responsibilities focus on engagement with governments, private sector and development agencies for the uptake and upscaling of ICIMOD’s interventions.
