The Institute is a multidisciplinary scientific institution in which scientists solve topical and applied problems of geology, glacial geology, geoecology, geophysics, and other related areas. The Institute continues to make a significant contribution to the development of the fundamentals of geology and the expansion of the mineral resource base of the country. Consultations were held with the Institute during project formulation.

Role in the Project:

The Institute will be involved in conducting a scientific assessment of the hazards and risks of GLOFs. In addition, the Institute will be involved in conducting activities at the local community level in the pilot areas.
