Hi, I'm Lalitha Krishnan. My guest is Aditi Mukherji: Principal Researcher at the International Water Management Institute. She is the coordinating lead author of the water chapter of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is to be published in 2021. In her previous job as the Theme Leader of the Water and Air theme at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Nepal, she co-edited a report on the effects of climate change on the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) region. This report that has woken the world to the possible reality that the Hindu Kush Himalayas could lose as much as 90% of its snow and ice by 2100 due to retreating glaciers, glacier-fed rivers, and carbon emissions. She has over 20years of experience working on policies and institutions of water resources management with a special focus on water-energy-food nexus. Photo courtest Aditi Mukerji.
