About this book

Language: English

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) laid down a global strategy of saving mankind from the threats posed by a changing climate and the loss of biodiversity. These changes are confounded with other global changes in the biophysical, social economic, and political environment. Harmonization of environmental, economic and social development trajectories, the path of sustainable development, has been on the forefront of the global agenda. The persistence of current climate change trends will threaten biodiversity conservation in the future. Nevertheless, judicious management of biodiversity could mitigate climate change. The Himalayan mountain system, which covers in part of in full eight countries (viz. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, China, Bhutan, Bhutan, and Myanmar), is distinguished globally for its immense biodiversity and sensitivity to climate change.

Responding to the global importance of the Himalayas, India has drawn a National Mission “Sustaining the Himalayan Ecosystem as part of the National Action Plan on Climate Change". This publication, an outcome of the research and development activities supported by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and cultural organization (UNESCO Regional office, New Delhi), the United Nations University (UNU, Tokyo), the MacArthur Foundation, the Asia Pacific Network for Sustainable Forest Management and Rehabilitation (APFNet) and the Asia Pacific Network (APN), provides an overview of the state of knowledge about climate change and biodiversity management and their linkages with socio-economic development in the Himalayas, with particular reference to the Himalayan region of India, with the ultimate objective of identifying research and development action points to be pursued for managing Himalayan biodiversity for climate change mitigation/adaptation and socio-economic development.
