Himalayan Meltdown: Bhutan Segment

Climate Change Response Video for the Global Environment Facility and Discovery Asia

As the planet warms, mountain glacial melt threatens people downstream. The people of the small kingdom of Bhutan engage in a valiant race against time to prevent an environmental disaster high in the Himalayan mountains, and find economic opportunity in the process. For production of this short Global Environment Facility documentary, Arrowhead Films traveled to the high-altitude worksite where construction to prevent a GLOF (glacial lake outburst flood) is underway. This program screened at the international 2010 Global Environmental Conference, and was included in Himalayan Meltdown, a feature-length documentary that is part of the Discovery Asia “Revealed” series.
