The Roof of the Asia: Mountain People and Ecosystem

It has been already two months since the Rio +20. ‘Our common vision’, the Rio+20’s declaration adopted by heads of state and key representatives from around the world recognised the global benefits of mountain people and vulnerability of mountain ecosystems to climate change. This month, we hear the importance of mountain people and ecosystems from the Director General, Dr. David Molden of ICIMOD, which is the regional intergovernmental learning and knowledge sharing centre serving the eight regional member countries of the Hindu Kush Himalayas.
