Climate change is causing significant mass loss of glaciers in high mountains worldwide. There are clear overall trends indicating global glacier recession, which is likely to accelerate in coming decades. Surrounding the rivers originating in the Himalayas, like the Indus, Syr Darya, and Amu Darya, a major decline in the water flow will have devastating impacts on food production and domestic availability, as there are few, if any, alternatives to this water.
