Melting Himalayan Glaciers To Affect Food Production In South Asia

SOLUKHUMBU, NEPAL - OCTOBER 19: A woman processes cow dung and urine to use as fertilizer for cultivation on October 19, 2022, in Solukhumbu, Nepal. Melting glaciers, rainwater, and groundwater help farmers downstream irrigate their crops. Mountains provide 30 to 60% of the freshwater downstream in humid parts of the world, and 70 to 95% in semi-arid and arid environments. Nearly 1.9 billion people living in the 10 river basins also benefit directly and indirectly and more than 3 billion people enjoy the food produced in its river basins. Of the 484 million people, 254 million are related to agriculture, where rice and Rice-Wheat Farming Systems contain 40 percent of the cultivated land in the region. Agriculture is an important role in the economic and social development of south Asian countries, which has exclusively contributed to providing employment, improving food security, and reducing poverty. But climate change makes it more vulnerable and farmers started adapting the process of agriculture. (Footage by Zakir Hossain Chowdhury/Getty Images)
