The water supply for the Himalayan glaciers, which have retreated for more than a century due to climate change, is dwindling.
The world’s top-ranking glacier experts said this week that global demand for water will soon become an urgent problem, forcing them to start a new war against water shortages.
The water shortage crisis is worsening, said Himalayan glacier expert Dr. Amit Dangre, an associate professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a leading expert on the glaciers.
The Himalayans glaciers have retreated in recent years because of climate change.
The glaciers, located in India and Tibet, are the second largest on Earth and the biggest ice sheet in the world.
They are also the largest in Asia, accounting for about 30 percent of the world’s ice mass.
The rapid retreat has made the Himalays glaciers vulnerable to severe water shortages, said Dangrey.
The melting of the glaciers, especially in Tibet, has created a huge lake in the Tibetan Plateau, a region of the Himalaya.
The lake is filled with water, which flows into the sea.
That means that the lake is being drained to create more space for glaciers to grow.
That has caused more and more glaciers to retreat, he said.
The researchers said they have already identified some potential solutions, such as increasing water supply through new dams or reforestation, which they hope will save some of the water in the lake.
But the Himalayers have yet to find any solutions for the water shortage, said a statement issued by the Himalayer Foundation, which manages the glaciers in the region.
The institute said the water scarcity crisis has a lot of global implications.
It is also having a major impact on India and other countries in the area.
India’s dams and reforestation programs have already helped to stabilize the situation.
But there is a big need for more global cooperation in order to address the water crisis, the foundation said.
