1. The Problems You may have heard about glaciers melting in the Himalayas because of climate change? But what does this mean for the millions of people who live there? Well it depends on where they live. The melting of Himalayan glaciers will affect communities close to the rivers that the melt feeds. However climate change as a whole is adversely altering weather patterns all over Nepal and hindering the ability of mountain farmers to grow enough food to survive; winters are drier, groundwater often runs out before the rainy season relieves the drought, and disruptive pests and invasive plant species survive more easily due to the warming climate. These farming communities need a solution...

Well it depends on where they live. The melting of Himalayan glaciers will affect communities close to the rivers that the melt feeds. However climate change as a whole is adversely altering weather patterns all over Nepal and hindering the ability of mountain farmers to grow enough food to survive; winters are drier, groundwater often runs out before the rainy season relieves the drought, and disruptive pests and invasive plant species survive more easily due to the warming climate.

2. The Solutions The Glacier Trust does not ‘do’ aid. Instead we work at community level promoting community-led sustainable development programmes as a solution. We take a holistic approach to building resilience to climate change with ‘hands on’ knowledge sharing education programmes that focus on better use of existing resources. We achieve this one village at a time, enabling positive change to occur which neighbouring communities tend to pick up on and apply themselves, so your money continues to make a difference as the knowledge you have paid for moves from village to village!
