New Publication: Melting of Himalayan Glaciers and Planetary Health
Check out the newly published article by our Planetary Health Fellow Dr. Byomkesh Talukder and Director of the Dahdaleh Institute Dr. James Orbinski.
Climate change has accelerated the melting of Himalayan glaciers, with profound impacts on the planetary health subsystems of the Himalayan region, and with implications for hundreds of millions of people. Using a complex adaptive systems framework based on a systematic literature review, nine subsystem categories of planetary health are mapped. These are: ecological services, disaster, water security, food security, energy security, livelihood and culture, migration, conflict and public health. This mapping helps to explain linkages between melting glaciers and associated planetary health issues, which can be helpful in planning for better planetary health.
