Sustainable Mountain Development: UN adopts resolution initiated by Italy, Kyrgyzstan

NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 22 – A resolution on “Sustainable Mountain Development” presented by Italy and Kyrgyzstan was adopted today at the United Nations after receiving 110 co-sponsorship.

The resolution, adopted by the Second Committee of the General Assembly, encourages Member States to adopt long-term strategies, through holistic and multi-stakeholder approaches, to end poverty, address food insecurity, promote the conservation of biodiversity and fight against social exclusion and disaster risk in mountain areas, contributing to the promotion of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. “Mountains are home to millions of people that often live at risk of extreme natural events, with limited access to health, education and economic systems. Achieving sustainable mountain development would have a direct impact on lives and livelihoods in local mountain communities all over the world”, the Italian Deputy Representative to the UN, Ambassador Gian Luca Greco said, introducing the draft that then was put to vote.

They provide indications of climate change through phenomena such as modifications to biodiversity, retreat of mountain glaciers and flash floods, with heavy impacts on sources of freshwater in the world”, added Greco: “Protecting mountain ecosystems means reducing vulnerability”.
