Kathmandu city, Nepal

Year: 2010 Taken by: Lawrence Hislop
People living in mountain regions across the world are used to environmental change and are regularly dealing with too much or too little water, both conditions often occurring within the same season or within short periods of time. Hence many mountain peoples have developed a series of strategies for dealing with a dynamic environment and have considerable adaptive capacity. However, most mountain regions are now experiencing greater ranges and rates of change, that likely will stress and in many cases exceed the adaptive capacities of the social-ecological systems.
