Description

For centuries, people living in South Asia had been drawing their water from the rivers they lived beside, all of which have their beginnings in the Himalayan peaks (also known as 'the water towers of South Asia'). Melted ice from the glaciers and snow lakes flows down the mountains in overground and underground streams, eventually forming the major river systems of Nepal, North India and Bangladesh. Ten or 15 years later, however, they began turning up at their doctors' surgeries with some worrying symptoms.

Sai Bhaskar Reddy Nakka is an Environment and Development professional currently working as CEO of Geoecology Energy Organisation (GEO). One of Bashar´s area of contribution is on "Biochar" - using charcoal produced from biomass for good.
