Mission

The funded projects aim to support people who are highly dependent on the melt water supply from glaciers and to protect the environment. At least 200 million people worldwide will face water shortages if their glaciers disappear.

A new ecological technique of snowmaking for the protection of large glaciers without the use of electric power is under development, while fleece covers will be used to protect smaller glaciers.
