Ecologically Sensitive Zone


Scientists have concluded that Himalayas have lost about 13% of glaciers in the last 40 years. The rate of deterioration is different for different glaciers. Glaciers are retreating faster in the Western Himalayas than in Sikkim.


Uttarakhand– environmentalists have slammed the Uttarakhand government for promoting industrial development in the ecologically sensitive zones. Dr. Prakash Joshi, founder of Himalayan Environmental Studies and Conservation Organization, attacked the Bahuguna government for harming the environment in the state. The attack was targetted against the Coca Cola’s Bottling Plant in Dehradun, which has been facing opposition from the locals as well. Similarly, Cement Plants are seen as detrimental to the agricultural lands and the health of the people.


Scientists have warned about ill effects of global warming over Himalayan glaciers. Due to increased melting of glaciers and more rain along the Himalayas, there will greater flow in the himalayan rivers. This would increase the run-off from river by five times.
