A study from FutureWater, Utrecht University and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) suggests that despite retreating glaciers, the amount of water supplied by the Himalayan mountains will increase in the coming decades. Their findings was  published in Nature Climate Change on 1 June 2014.


Glacier- and snowmelt contribute water to ten important river basins originating from the Himalayas and in the Tibetan Plateau serving over 1.3 billion people. A group of scientists assessed the importance of meltwater for the Indus, Ganges, Brahmaputra, Salween and Mekong rivers and discovered how climate change will alter river flow in the coming decades. The findings of the study will be important in shaping climate change adaptation policy in the twelve riparian countries surrounding these river basins.
