Leaving no one in mountains behind: Localizing the SDGs

An issue brief featuring the need to localize the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the resilience of mountain ecosystem and communities has been released today, 24 October, at the World Mountain Forum 2018 in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.

Vowing to “leave no one behind,” the United Nations 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can possibly progress manageable mountain improvement and fortify the ecosystems and communities in mountain zones. In any case, to understand that potential, the SDGs must be deciphered and localized to mountain regions. This will empower policymakers and implementers to comprehend mountain needs, customized activities, and measure progress towards the SDGs.

The findings of the report highlights basic progress needs and priorities in mountains, for example, sustainable use of natural resources and strengthening mountain communities’ resilience and their livelihood resources.

One of the key challenge in the way forward is the data gap or knowledge gap which exists in the mountain regions that corresponds to SDGs needs.
