Across the valleys and gorges of south east Tibet (english)
14 Oct 2002
Across the valleys and gorges of south east Tibet deforestation is causing severe problems of erosion and landslides, while levels of silt in rivers such as the Yangstse have reached the highest world levels.


The effects have now reached beyond Tibet's borders and are acknowledged to be a prime factor in devastating floods in China, India and Bangladesh. Such vegetation cover is also thought to influence land and surrounding atmospheric temperatures which help regulate the vital Asiatic Monsoon.

Deforestation on such a massive scale is causing serious alarm among climatologists and environmentalists, who consider this pattern may be dangerously destabilised.
