Keywords: High-altitude wetlands, nomadic communities, spatial information


High-altitude wetlands are critical ecosystems at risk from global climatic changes and local human activities. Management plans for the conservation of these wetlands require spatial information, from remote sensing data and from local human communities. I describe my research aims and methodology working with the Changpa, a nomadic pastoral community who inhabit the high-altitude regions around the Tso Kar basin wetlands in Ladakh, India.
