  • Climate Change, Mountains and the Future of Humanity
    Date: Feb 13, 2020

Description: Climate change has become a global issue and mountains are among the most affected by climate change and evidence such as shrinkage of glaciers, low density of ice in mountains even in the winter season also proves it. Many research also shows that the implication of climate change in mountains will increase beyond mountain regions. Climate change and its effects on mountains are a global concern. The world’s mountains and mountain regions are home to more than about 10% of the global population and the majority of the mountain people live in developing countries like Nepal. They are centers of biological diversity, important tourist destinations, and sources of raw materials. However, mountainous regions are especially sensitive to climate change, risking many of the goods and services. Mountains are often a limited-choice environment due to harsh living conditions and due to marginal economic conditions and political instability and one of the main problems in mountain regions is food insecurity. Sometimes external support is needed to reduce the poverty level.
