Mountain water towers

What do the Himalayas, Andes, and Rockies have in common?  Over half of humanity, and critical ecosystems, depend on the water they store and release.  They play a central role in food security, regional hydroclimatic processes, spiritual identity, and recreation and place-based values. Yet, they all face pressures from climate change, warming, dams and infrastructure development. The Water Resources and Policy Group has ongoing collaboration, research and action links, plus science-policy focused on these critical water towers.  aconcagua5nnmount_kailash_4white mountains
