The Himalayan communities have a major role in the maintenance of these river systems. In this regard, Dr Yashwant S Rawat feels that Himalayan states must also be considered judiciously while providing energy and water supply from the Himalayan rivers as it is very essential for an inclusive development of the Himalayan states to combat climate change and poverty. It would help to build buoyant Himalayan communities as they are highly susceptible to climate change and natural disasters.
