07: Climate change on the Tibetan Plateau in focus – Ruth Gamble
The Himalayan mountain range sits on the border between India and China, the world’s two most populated nations, and also travels through Pakistan, Nepal and Bhutan. These mountains are a key geopolitical and environmental landscape with implications for the wider Asian area. Ruth Gamble is a David Myers Research Fellow in the Department of Archaeology and History at La Trobe University, whose research focuses on the environmental history of the Tibetan plateau. In this episode of Research in Focus, Ruth chats to Lawrie Zion about the tense relations along the China/India border, and the implications for the environment in the rest of the region, and Australia.
