Over 70% of traditional water sources are dried up in the rural mountain communities of the Indian Himalayas. This staggering fact is just one of many lasting impacts these communities face as a result of climate change and environmental degradation in the area. “Mountains United” follows photographer Matt Delorme as he documents how local women and people are taking matters into their own hands, working towards water sanitation, renewable energy, forestry, sustainable agriculture and enterprise development. This episode airs November 1st, 2018 at 6 PM EST
