How I protect the pulse
To protect the pulse of the planet, I generate knowledge on the sustenance of Himalayan glaciers, the region’s ecosystems and water resources by contributing my expertise in the formulation of national, regional and global policies, and by raising mountain-related issues and advocating for their solutions in regional and global arenas. I also brought concerns related to the Hindu Kush Himalaya to the forefront by serving as the Coordinating Lead Author of IPCC Special Report on Ocean and Cryosphere in 2019.
