Community-led ecosystem management as contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals
28 October, 4:15 PM Jakarta/Bangkok
As mountain ecosystems are among the most vulnerable to climate change and with comparatively lower priority given to mountain areas, the session will be focused on issues of management and conservation of mountain ecosystems by local communities. The expected outcome of the session is for stakeholders to take an integrated approach, combining the voices of the international community with the voices of local communities - the custodians of traditional ecological knowledge. The emphasis will be on the revitalisation and application of traditional ecological knowledge in the management of mountain ecosystems.
The thematic session aims to draw the attention of the international community to the importance a role of local communities, indigenous peoples and grass-root actors in the conservation, management and restoration of mountain ecosystems for achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It brings together international organisations, academia, national governments and local communities to discuss the importance of local and traditional knowledge and practices in achieving the SDGs in the context of people-centered land governance.
