UN Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20
The objective of the Conference is to secure renewed political commitment for sustainable development, assess the progress to date and the remaining gaps in the implementation of the outcomes of the major summits on sustainable development, and address new and emerging challenges
The Conference will focus on two themes: (a) a green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication; and (b) the institutional framework for sustainable development.
In this context, Mountain Research and Development (MRD) aims at exploring potentials and challenges of green economy for enhancing livelihoods and alleviating poverty in mountains. We are seeking well-validated practice- and policy-oriented insights for supporting the transition towards a greener economy capable of enhancing mountain livelihoods (MountainDevelopment papers), and sound analyses of the linkages between green economy and livelihoods in mountains (MountainResearch papers). This Focus Issue will be published in May 2012 (vol 32 no 2), in time for the Earth Summit 2012.
