The Central Tibetan Administration urges world leaders gathering in Paris in December at the UN COP21 climate change summit to put Tibet on the global climate change agenda.
CLIMATE ACTION FOR THE ROOF OF THE WORLD
A global environmental catastrophe can be avoided, but we must act now to ensure that the Tibetan Plateau and the world’s fragile ecosystem are protected.
Tibet is facing the impact of climate change:
- retreating glaciers
- deteriorating permafrost
- increasing desertification
- warming at a rate three times the global average
The effects of climate change on the Tibetan Plateau are far-reaching–affecting billions of people. Tibetans need to be stewards of their own land and their expertise must be taken into consideration when tackling climate change.
