This Briefing Note describes the issues discussed at an international Workshop held in San Diego in May 2009 which focussed on the impact on water resources of declining mountain snows and glacier retreat in Himalayan Asia and the Western United States. The Workshop concluded that as adaptation strategies are locally conditioned, new regional climate assessments are required that link global climate models to local decision making.
