Himalayas on the Brink: Hindu Kush Himalaya Declared Biosphere in Critical Condition

A stark warning emerged this week from the UNESCO World Heritage Committee, declaring the Hindu Kush Himalaya region a “Biosphere in Crisis.”

Years of unchecked climate change, deforestation, and unsustainable development have pushed this ecologically diverse region to the brink of collapse. Glaciers are melting at alarming rates, threatening water sources for millions downstream.

Landslides and floods are becoming more frequent and intense, displacing communities and devastating farmland. The report paints a grim picture of a region losing its natural resilience and struggling to adapt to a rapidly changing environment.

Urgent action is needed to protect this critical ecosystem and the millions of people who depend on it.
