Part of the 2015–2016 Fellows' Presentation Series

Lecture by Maharaj K. Pandit RI '16

During his fellowship, Pandit is undertaking research for his book Life in the Himalaya, to be published by Harvard University Press. The book explores a “safe space” for the Himalaya in the context of the more than 1.3 billion people who depend on the natural resources of water and biodiversity there. The Himalaya also influences global climate. Pandit aims to present an interdisciplinary account of the Himalaya’s past and present and to highlight the importance of the world and international institutions taking notice.
