USAID Asia Glacier Melt Project: expert summary of science regarding glacier melt/retreat in the Himalaya, Hindu Kush, Karakoram, Pamir, and Tien Shan mountain ranges. This summary will provide the scientific basis for related studies that will evaluate the impacts of glacier melt/retreat. This will support an integrated analysis that will determine appropriate interventions to mitigate or adapt to such impacts and will serve as the evidence base for future USAID glacier melt-related activities.
