Canadian Mountain Podcast, Special Episode: 2018 #MountainsMatter for Water
AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD NOW!
On December 11, 2018, the Canadian Mountain Network hosted a panel discussion on how #MountainsMatter for Water as a part of the University of Alberta’s 2018 Mountain Festival.
Mountains are ‘water towers’ for the world, providing 60 and 80 percent of all freshwater resources. However, all available records indicate that glaciers in mountain ranges around the world are retreating and disappearing due to climate change. At least 600 glaciers have disappeared completely over the past decades, affecting water supplies relied on by billions living downstream. – Source FAO Departments and Offices
