Water and Climate Change

Climate change will cause snow fields and glaciers that feed into rivers to melt faster, leading to floods and rapidly decreasing water reserves in the glaciers. Those living downstream no longer will be able to rely on a steady flow of water and will have to find ways to conserve and store water for the dry season. The main source of the Ganges River, where workers are collecting silt, is the Gangotri glacier in the Himalayas, which has receded by nearly 915 meters in the past 25 years.
