As per my level, i have not found any modelling done on this regard. I wonder thinking about the changes ongoing in the Himalayas of Nepal due to climate change and/or population growth. Mountains chain is the only resource for providing drinking water, irrigation etc to 2 billion population along with the diverse organisms as well. No well documented data is available on this topic. However, appreciative steps have been taken by ICIMOD, IUCN and WWF.
I would like to the accurate methodology for doing research in the same topic.

Hi @Pitamber. Thank you for posting in the community! I want to make sure I understand your question. Are you asking for suggested research methodology for studying the impact of climate change on the Himalayas?

What is your field of study, for example, anthropology, ecology, biology, or something else?

I need method of research on it as well as want to see how will it be after 100 years. My subject is Botany Under specialization in ecology
Search under ‘climate’ in platforms’ catalogs, there are courses. When you find them, you can contact the relevant universities.

If this is for a Coursera course, I suggest posting your question in your course discussion forum – learners or mentors may have some suggestions for you. Alternatively, I would try to find modeling for other mountain chains – or change your research question in some other small way and try to find existing research that you can use as a model for your own research design. I added some tags to your post in the hopes that other community members will find your post and have some suggestions for you, too.
