Coined as the “Third Pole” of the earth, the Himalayas are home to the largest field of glaciers outside of the polar caps. Himalayan glaciers provide a water source for almost half of the world population. Encompassing territories in China, Bhutan, Nepal and India, the region has lacked a strong steward and sufficient trans-border resources to ensure the health and safety of its glaciers and waterways. Locally, the Himalayan Glacier watershed is threatened by plastic waste, climate change, and deforestation.
