David Molden interview

You may have read this week about the impacts of climate change on the Himalaya Hindu Kush mountains. For a while on Monday it was the lead story on the Guardian website.

ICIMOD, who published the 627 page report, are based in Kathmandu. Their Director General, David Moldon, was interviewed this week by the Nepali Times.

Moldon makes some very interesting points. Relevant to us are his comments on the agricultural strategies mountain communities can adopt to adapt to climate change. He recommends growing high value cash crops, something we are enabling in Nawalparasi, Solukhumbu and now Kavre.
