The vulnerabilities of the population in the Hindukush-Himalaya mountain belt call for a global dialogue through the language of science; A view of Sagarmatha (Mt Everest), Nepal.

Abstract: Spread across eight countries, the Hindukush-Himalaya region supports a population of 234 million. Its increased vulnerability in the context of climate change calls for a forum to address the concerns of the people through scientific consensus. Experiences of a common scientific language amongst the stakeholders of the Arctic Council may be a significant takeaway towards this.
