The Himalayas are staring at a grim water future, says study

Updated : March 22, 2019 03:36 PM IST

The Himalayan region in four South Asian nations, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal, which is home to about 100 million people, has witnessed rapid urbanisation over the past few decades.
A study now stresses that rapid urbanisation in the region, driven mainly by tourism, is threatening water security in the area which will only be exacerbated by climate change.
The researchers argue that unless a long-term and mountain specific strategy is devised, millions living in the region would face a severe water crisis.
