With warming in the HKH being higher than the global average (ICIMOD, 2007), climate induced natural hazards are likely to be exacerbated, including severe glacial melting and the formation of glacial lakes and, GLOFs.
Alpine eco-systems are sensitive to global temperature rise and have been a focus of climate change research. As resources of fresh water, the cryosphere as a whole, and glaciers in particular, have drawn much interest from the scientific community.
