Title
Energy needs in a high altitude conflict zone of India
Authors (non HEDON members)
Dr Sudhirendar Sharma
Abstract
Kargil, a district perched atop the Himalayan plateau, at an altitude of over three thousand metres above sea level, has turned out to be a stage for cross-border aggression. It has not only faced two major wars, in 1965 and in 1971, but has been witness to low-intensity cross-border aggression between India and Pakistan for a decade now. However, it was during the armed aggression of May 1999 that the region shot into prominence. But for the conflict, the region would not have been known to the rest of the country.

Title in French
Besoins énergétiques dans une zone en conflit de l’Inde située en haute altitude.
Abstract in French

Les conflits armés et les problèmes de réfugiés présentent plusieurs difficultés: d’abord pour les réfugiés eux-mêmes ensuite pour les populations environnantes. La nourriture est un besoin de base, cependant dans les régions froides et isolées, le bois pour le chauffage peut être la principale priorité. Cet article montre comment les organisations d’aide et ultérieurement les organisations de développement doivent tenir compte des ressources et contraintes locales, il esquisse également les réponses à apporter en se fondant sur les modes traditionnels de vie afin de parvenir a un maximum d’auto-suffisance.
