Sustainable Mountain Development Summit VI, Aizawl
September 20 - September 22
The Summit VI was unanimously decided to be held in Aizawl, hosted by the Mizoram Sustainable Development Foundation (MSDF). The themes proposed for discussion and intellectual scrutiny in this summit are in conformity with the IMI’s vision and mission with a hope of conceptualizing more specific targets and solutions that would benefit the mountain and hill states. The themes that are proposed for deliberations in the Summit are Climate Change and Sustainable Mountain Cities.
Keeping in mind the geographical aspects of the hills states where the forest cover areas are large and vast, and the majority of the people living in these areas depend upon it for livelihood. Forest becomes a centric focus. The protection of livelihood comes in contrast with the conservation of forest, and how the existing forest rules and issues may aid in the development of the hill states. There are enormous prospects in the hill and mountain states for a thriving eco-tourism and mountain agriculture. Through the Summit we hope to gather insights into these topics that will eventually be benefited by all the state members.
