Environment Current Affairs of J & K and Ladakh | Highlights

Over 214,000 trees to make way for Ujh hydropower project in J&K

  • India’s environment ministry’s expert panels have recommended clearance for the Ujh multipurpose hydroelectric project in Kathua region of Jammu and Kashmir for which 214,502 trees in the ecologically sensitive area will need to be cut.
  • The project is envisaged on River Ujh, which is a tributary of River Ravi that flows into Pakistan and is part of the Indus River basin system.

Scientists analysing Uttarakhand floods highlight need to improve monitoring of glaciers

  • There is an urgent need to gather baseline data to understand the hydrology, geology and climate change response of Himalayan glaciers.
  • Currently, there are a lot of unknowns to successfully predict and quantify future catastrophic events, that may become more common with climate change.
  • The frequency of glacial-lake outburst floods and run-off floods have increased recently and could increase further in coming decades, threatening existing and planned hydropower infrastructure downstream.
  • A lower-emissions climate change pathway would reduce the rate of glacier loss, increasing the time available for adaptation. This pathway would have considerable socio-economic benefits, added the review.

Trout farming has emerged as an important source of income for farmers in the Kashmir region

  • Trout farming has emerged as an important source of income for farmers in the Kashmir region. It received a major thrust in 2020 with the launch of the Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana (PMSSY).
  • Locals can establish their units with the help of this scheme, under which 60% money is provided by the Union government and 40% by the UT administration.

Ladakh pitches for a new state bird and animal

  • The former state of Jammu and Kashmir had the black-necked crane (Seen in Eastern Ladakh) and Kashmir stag (Found only in Kashmir) as its State Bird and State Animal.
  • Following the bifurcation, new options for the bird and animal symbols were needed for the newly created state and union territory.
  • The snow leopard and the black-necked crane are some of the main contenders for the position of the State Animal and State Bird

Hangul population increases marginally in latest census

  • The Hangul population has registered a marginal increase in the Kashmir Valley. It is now 261, compared to 237 in 2019.
  • Livestock grazing and constant habitat fragmentation, due to the Kashmir conflict, are main reasons for their declining numbers.
  • Constant and regular population monitoring is the only way researchers, scientists and conservationists can get a general idea about a species that is otherwise hard to locate or observe all-year long.
