Changing Glaciers and Hydrology in Asia: Addressing vulnerabilities to glacier melt impacts


USAID


Published in : 2010


Available in : English


The goal of the study reported here is to provide approaches to glacier melt, within the context of climate change, based on state-of-the-art knowledge, to USAID Missions in three topic areas: (1) science related to glacier melt and high-altitude hydrology, (2) the impacts of changes near and far in space and time, and (3) the organizations and activities already addressing these issues. The key strategy is then to identify cross-sectoral approaches that will have multiple benefits for
improving the safety, health and overall well-being of the region’s populations.
