Special issue on youth perspectives on Rio+20 (Asia Pacific Mountain Courier, December 2011), ICIMOD
by: International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD)

Highlighting the Mountain Agenda for Rio+20 Preparations

With the backdrop of the upcoming United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012 (also known as Rio+20) and as one of the founding members of the Mountain Partnership Consortium, ICIMOD is working closely with key institutions around the globe to ensure that the issues and positions of mountainous countries and regions are clear and will be noticed by the Rio+20 Preparatory Committee as well as the concerned major groups. ICIMOD is working closely with major groups on children and youth, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), local authorities, the scientific and technological community, and women, while maintaining regular interaction with others. These activities are focused on the two themes of Rio+20: Green Economy in the Context of Poverty Eradication and Sustainable Development, and Institutional Framework for Sustainable Development.

ICIMOD?s Asia Pacific Mountain Network (APMN) is leading implementation of Rio+20 preparatory activities through improved engagement of youth and enhanced communication, knowledge sharing, and civil society dialogues. A detailed list of activities and documents can be accessed online at www.icimod.org/rio20. In this issue of the Asia-Pacific Mountain Courier, we offer to our readers how Asia Pacific youth are responding to Rio+20, with a thematic focus on green economy.
