Climate change wreaks havoc in Uttarakhand’s mountainous terrain

By Prof Anjal Prakash Jul 24, 2022

Anjal Prakash shares his views in this story that takes stock of the current situation of Joshimath, in Uttarakhand’s Chamoli district, which witnessed a major calamity last year due to a glacial burst which triggered floods that destroyed two hydropower projects. Every year, the frequency and magnitude of the disasters are getting more severe. Anjal Prakash requests the government to spend more resources in monitoring the region better to have more awareness leading to better adaptation practices.
