Himalayas are losing forests at a rate of 1.7% per year, according to a study by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The loss of forests leads to soil erosion, disruption of water cycles, and decreased habitats for wildlife, affecting both the environment and human livelihoods.
Waste & Water Management
Waste disposal and littering by tourists are the two significant challenges in remote areas of the Himalayas, leading to environmental degradation and health hazards. Proper waste management infrastructure is lacking, resulting in pollution of natural landscapes and water sources.
Climate change affects the Himalayas profoundly, causing glacial melting and retreating, altered weather patterns, and challenges in managing water resources. According to a study by ICIMOD, the average temperature in the Himalayas has increased by 0.5 degrees Celsius per decade since the 1950s.
Green House Gas Emission
Clean water access, water pollution, and inadequate waste management are pressing concerns in the Himalayas. Only 50% of the Himalayan population has access to clean drinking water.
Mumkin’s multidimensional Approaches
Mumkin's reforestation efforts are a cornerstone in their approach to addressing deforestation challenges in the Himalayas. By implementing large-scale tree-planting initiatives, we seek to counter the loss of forests at a rate of 1.7% annually.
These efforts aim to restore the region's green cover, reduce soil erosion, and provide habitats for diverse wildlife, promoting environmental balance and safeguarding the well-being of local communities reliant on these natural resources.
Community-driven initiatives that educate and empower local populations about responsible waste disposal.
By promoting recycling and environmentally conscious waste management practices, Mumkin strives to curb the adverse effects of improper waste disposal, reducing environmental degradation and health hazards in remote Himalayan regions.
Our water-focused initiatives encompass various projects directed at cleaning and purifying rivers. Mumkin organizes extensive river cleaning activities and implements sustainable water resource management projects.
By focusing on restoring the health of water bodies, these initiatives ensure clean water access for communities as well as contribute to the preservation of the ecological integrity of the Himalayas.
Furthermore, we also focus on solar power, hydroelectricity, and the integration of electric vehicles (EVs). With a primary emphasis on solar energy, our organization strategically deploys solar panels in remote villages. This ensures a dependable and eco-friendly electricity supply to residences, educational institutions, and healthcare centres.
Alongside this, Mumkin harnesses water resources for sustainable energy, implementing small-scale hydroelectric projects to generate power while preserving the delicate balance of the local ecosystem.
