We have lost a very dear friend and a THT board member- Dr Devendra Chauhan on 10th August 2017, early hours. Dr. Chauhan had done his Ph.D from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi and worked on glaciers for his research. He had over the years acquired considerable experience in livelihoods, hydrology and in areas related to science communication. He headed the Livelihood portfolio of CEDAR and supported many more social causes. May his soul rest in peace.

The Himalaya Trust (THT) is a registered society of dedicated grassroots workers which has been working with the mountain people of Uttarakhand since 1993 on issues of environmental and natural resource degradation which threaten the self-sufficient existence of small highland village communities. THT has registration under 12A, 80G and FCRA. “See Registration Details”
The Head Office of the Trust is in Dehra Dun in Uttarakhand. We have small, but active regional field centres in Kumaon and Garhwal headed by committed local social workers. It has a small membership of village based groups, individuals, as well as scientists, professionals and concerned citizens who constitute the Trust’s main think-tank as experts and consultants.
For members and their extended communities, developmental activists and thinkers, the Trust provides a valuable and informal forum for networking and forging partnerships, for taking up advocacy on issues of vital importance to mountain areas, and functions as a lively think-tank.
