Pakistan expands glacier monitoring in effort to cut disaster risk

23 Aug 2016, TRF

Pakistan will invest $8.5 million to expand a network of glacier monitoring stations tracking the pace of glacial melt in the Hindu Kush, Karakoram and Himalayan mountain ranges, in an effort to strengthen early warning systems and reduce the impact of flooding in the country. Almost half of Pakistan's 5,000 glaciers, covering near 15,000 square km, are in rapid retreat.
