Gauging Sustainability

By: Somana Riaz

The purpose of this workshop is to overview the concept of development for mountain communities. It focuses on identifying the potential environmental threats that have been introduced to the area as a result of human interventions. It will also highlight the effects infrastructure expansion leaves on the mountains, environment and available natural resources. The output is expected to be a feasible solution for finding ways of sustainability in the fragile environment and depleting natural resources that are critical for the survival of these remote communities.
