Ecosystem integrity as well as the goods and services offered by the rivers in India are getting adversely affected by changes in quantity quality and flow regimes. Growing water abstractions for agriculture domestic industrial and energy use are leaving many rivers running dry while others are becoming severely polluted. The mighty Ganga is no exception. During its 2,525 km journey from Gangotri to Ganga Sagar there are complex, nested sets of challenges that threaten the very existence of the holy river revered by millions of Indians.

Chaque année, 13 millions d’hectares de forêts sont perdus
dans le monde, ce qui représente la superficie globale de
l’Autriche et de la Suisse réunies. Cette déforestation touche
à raison de 90 pour cent des forêts tropicales. La perte de
forêts a des effets dévastateurs sur le climat et est la source
de 15 % à 20 pour cent des émissions mondiales de gaz à
effet de serre. Si l’on veut maintenir le réchauffement de la
planète en-dessous du seuil critique de 2 °C, les pertes de
forêts et la dégradation doivent être enrayées sans délai. En

Every year, 13 million hectares of forest are lost worldwide; that is an area the size of Austria and Switzerland combined. 90 percent of this deforestation involves tropical forests. Forest loss has devastating effects on the climate and is the source of between 15 and 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. If global warming is to be kept below the critical threshold of two degrees Celsius, forest loss and degradation must be halted without delay

Biome: Tropical and Subtropical Moist Broadleaf Forests...
Size: 53,400 square miles...
Conservation Status: Vulnerable.....

Introduction:
"Like many of the region's lowland forests, the Irrawaddy Moist Deciduous Forests [IM0117] ecoregion has been intensively cultivated and its forests converted over hundreds of years. As a consequence, most of the region's biodiversity has been extirpated, and because of political forces over the past few decades very little current information on the biodiversity status of this ecoregion is known.
