Nainital: The GBP Institute for Himalayan Environment and Development (GBPIHED), an autonomous institute under Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), has initiated implementation of lab-to-land approach by signing an MoU with the Central Himalayan Environment Association (CHEA).
After signing the MoU at the institute`s headquarters at Kosi-Katarmal, GBPIHED Director Dr P P Dhyani said the Himalayan region is getting warmer than the global average and adaptation to climate change, water and energy are new emerging challenges in the Indian Himalayan Region, spread over 12 states covering India`s 16 per cent geographical area.
Dhyani said in an era of climate change it was crucial to reach out to the communities and coordinate with voluntary organisations and expressed hope that with the signing of the MoU, the institute will be better equipped to transform and improve the standards of its research through the efforts of CHEA, an organisation working on environment and livelihood issues since 1981, and similar organisations.
