The impact of climate change on the Tibetan plateau is not just a regional but a global issue. The water security of hundreds of millions of people depends on the rivers originating from Tibet, and the impact on Tibet’s landscape and its natural resources due to climate warming will threaten not only the future food security of many nations but also their development.
In this age of climate change, Tibetans and their centuries-old knowledge of the Tibetan environment need to be involved in all aspects of restoration and stewardship of the ecosystems and ecosystem services of the Tibetan Plateau.
The 14th Dalai Lama has stressed the importance of raising awareness about the crisis in Tibet, and the important role played by both Chinese scientists and Tibetan people living on the land. Tibet is central to a global climate change solution.
