snowleopardsA new series of maps and analysis from WWF, funded by USAID, explores the links between climate change, snow leopard habitat, and water provision across the major mountain ranges and river basins of the Snow leopard range across Central Asia. The map book provides new insight into the downstream water provision benefits provided to human populations by the high altitude areas of the Snow leopard range, and how they are threatened by increasing temperatures and other climate change. Covering 12 countries, the range forms the headwaters of 20 major river basins which flow to 22 countries.
