Uttarakhand Glacier out burst due to Climate Change

By Prof Anjal Prakash Feb 08, 2021

Anjal Prakash, Research Director BIPP, shares his thoughts on the recent glacier outburst in Joshimath in Uttarakhand's Chamoli district. He says that while it is too early to explain the cause of the devastation, prima facie seemed to be due to climate change and global warming, which has become an alarming and irreversible situation now. He also mentions that the Himalayan region is the least monitored region and requires the government to spend more resources closely tracking these areas so that there is more awareness.
