Agricultural land around the Himalyas
Climate change scenarios for the next about 50 years project higher
temperatures in the high Himalayas resulting in more rapid
melting of the glaciers which are an important source of water
of the Pakistani rivers. It is projected that after initial increase
in the river flows for 2–3 decades, the flows will decrease substantially resulting in greatly reduced supplies in the vast irrigation system.
