Climate Zangskar

By the People & For the People

WHAT Do We Do?

Climate Z will explore the innovative methods of community-based irrigation, cultivation, pastoralism, and landscape management that have been practiced for millennia in Zangskar. The Climate Z team includes Zangskari villagers who will:

  • Develop integrative landscape management plans
  • Measure environmental variables and their impact on critical communal resources such as water, food, fodder, fuel, and trees,¬†
  • Develop workshops that help produce knowledge around water rights, land rights, seed banks, and climate advocacy.
