000034374 520__ $$aThe Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) is on the frontline of climate change, manifested through rising temperatures and changing precipitation throughout the region. The pace of change, especially at higher altitudes, is faster than the global average and the region could experience average warming of between 4–5°C by 2100. While future precipitation trends are less clear, increases in precipitation extremes are likely in the future, bringing with it increased risks of flooding and other climate-related hazards. As the Himalayan countries are already amongst the most disaster-prone on Earth, these are not far-off risks, but very real present-day concerns. <p><p> The Outlook on climate change adaptation in the Hindu Kush Himalaya is the seventh in a series of mountain adaptation outlook reports created by UN Environment in collaboration with partners. The Outlook is intended to serve as a practical companion for local, regional and national policy makers seeking to protect fragile mountain ecosystems and the people who depend on them.
