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

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.
