Climate in Bolivia: Water for La Paz

Deutsche Welle (Nov. 11, 2012) The metropolitan area of La Paz is expected to grow to 8 million people in the coming twenty years. Water from the mountains is already barely sufficient to supply the Bolivian capital during dry seasons. Because of climate change, rainy seasons can no longer be reliably calculated. To ensure an adequate long-term supply of clean water for the region, which lies at an altitude of 4000 meters above sea level, water management around the six Andean glaciers has to be adjusted to suit the climatic changes.

While climatologists have long known that rate of ice melt into our oceans has increased since records began more than a century ago, the new research shows just how much is being lost.
