Type of Event:
Public Lecture

The snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas are instantly recognisable, but the critical role these mountains play in Asia’s climate, hydrology, ecology and geopolitics is mostly underplayed.

Despite this importance, or perhaps because of them, there are a number of threats to the environment, many of which intersect, and the Himalayas will need careful management and thoughtful intervention if they are to survive both as a natural environment and a resource.

In this event, a panel of experts discuss the problems with managing the Himalayas and potential solutions.

Speakers:

  • Dr Alexander Davis (NGN Research Fellow, La Trobe University)
  • Dr Ruth Gamble (Centre for the Study of the Inland, La Trobe University)
  • Dr Anwesha Dutta (Chr. Michelsen Institute, Bergen, Norway)
