Integrating a psychological perspective into climate change and sustainability thinking suggests a more equitable way to think about the individual’s role in societal-scale shifts. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).

Climate change has accelerated the melting of Himalayan glaciers, with profound impacts on the planetary health realms of the Himalayan region. The complexity has been captured and mapped to explain linkages between melting glaciers and associated planetary health issues to help planning for better planetary health in nine subsystem categories: ecological services, disaster, water security, food security, energy security, livelihood and culture, migration, conflict and public health. In addition to the main SDGs, this article is indirectly related to SDG 1 (No Poverty) and SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities).
