Importance of the program
Climate change is a global phenomena and one of the current burning issues. Climate change is already beginning to transform life on Earth. Around the globe, seasons are shifting, temperatures are climbing and sea levels are rising. The climate changing patterns of rain and snow are forcing trees and plants around the world to move toward up mountain slopes and Himalayas. With the rise of temperature, frozen ice of the Himalaya, which is vital source of fresh water for thousands of millions of people in south Asia, flora and fauna is shrinking rapidly. Some glaciers have disappearance and many are on the verge of disappearance. Many glacier lakes in Himalayan region are appearing and existing are expanding and are on the verge of exploding, which can have catastrophic consequences human life and nature itself.
Economic development cannot happen without water. The world leaders of the fastest growing economies, such as China and India, are already in the midst of water crises: their unconstrained growth is out of sync with their limited resources. Their challenges are shifting the global agenda. It is telling that while water crises represent the highest potential risk to the living being cycle in south Asia. Therefore, the Himalayas of Nepal is an open library for those who want to study the raw evidences of climate change and global warming and its effects.
