Dr. Madhav Karki writes about the commitments made by the member countries during Rio+20 summit on various sustainable development goals (SDGs) on low carbon green economy principles and good governance practices, in socio-economic and environmental perspectives.
He argues that post Rio+20 actions should be more cohesive, participatory, multi-disciplinary and simple in approach, so that they could be easily communicated and adopted by the communities. The adoption of these principles through focused developmental targets in concurrence with low carbon, green, resource efficient pathways as per local needs are the important areas of actions by country governments.
He argues about various priority areas as post Rio+20 actions on climate adaptation & mitigation plans, poverty eradication targets and reviewing specificities of national policies and processes in context to mountains.
