Climate Yatra from Dehrdun to Leh
The Himalaya supports nearly half of humanity “Him” means snow “alaya” means mountain. The mountains of snow have also been called the third pole, since they are the third largest body of snow on our planet after the Antarctic and Artic.
Over the last year, Navdanya / Research Foundation teams have worked with local communities in Uttarakhand and Ladakh to assess the impact of climate change on their ecosystems and economies to evolve participatory plans for climate change adaptation. From 6th to 13th of September we undertook a climate yatrafrom Dehradun in Uttarakhand to Leh in Ladakh.
