SHARE THE FACTS: #ClimateAction for #TibetThirdPole
Tibet’s nomads have lived sustainably the the plateau’s grasslands for millennia, in harmony with this globally significant ecosystem.
Now China has moved over 2 million Tibetans nomads from their home on the grasslands to newly constructed settlements, profoundly altering Tibet’s social and environmental fabric, imperilling their livelihoods and their culture, and threatening the survival of the rangelands on the roof of the world. This is leading to increased desertification and exacerbating the impact of global warming.
