Some Questions

These are some questions that pop out from the top of our heads and are in no way an exhaustive list.

  • Do we know the carrying capacity of our mountains? Do we understand the significance and importance of carrying capacity studies?
  • Has there ever been any reliable study undertaken by an expert independent agency to determine the carrying capacity of IHR or any of the states or UT in the region or any part of any of these states and UTs?
  • Is our development aligned with the environment and ecology of the IHR ?
  • Are we really congnisant of the impact of our development on our environment and ecology in the IHR?
  • Are we doing climate proofing (whatever is possible) of our infrastructure, agriculture, horticulture etc in this region?
  • Are we equipping our farmers and horticulturists both in terms of inputs and technology to deal with the changing weather conditions in IHR?
  • Are we prepared to deal with extreme weather conditions?
  • Do we have fail-safe early warning systems in place in case of natural calamities and can our systems respond to such situations in a very short turn-around time?
  • Do we have disaster management systems in place which are designed keeping in mind the predicted consequences of enhanced adverse impacts of climate change in the Himalayas?
  • Do we have reliable vulnerability studies done at the local level in the states and UTs in IHR? Are we doing adaptation based upon the prediction of vulnerability studies to upgrade and equip our systems or aligning our policies and laws to meet new challenges?
  • Are we doing enough to protect our forest, biodiversity and rivers?
  • Is hydroelectric power really green?
  • Are we managing our waste well?
  • Are we plundering the ecological wealth of the region in the name of responsible tourism and ecotourism?
  • Do we have lessons to be learnt from mountains elsewhere in the world?
  • Do we want to stop situations like Joshimuth, Shimla, Kullu, Manali?
