Tibetans are the frontline communities that have firsthand experience of the detrimental effects of climate change. Tibet’s rivers and glaciers affect an uncountable number of people downstream, about 2 billion throughout Asia. Despite these facts, Tibet and Tibetans are being left out of the climate conversation and are actively silenced by the CCP.
Tibet, known as the Water Tower of Asia, serves as the source of ten major Asian river systems flowing into some of the most densely populated countries: China, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Burma, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Pakistan.
