As part of the ‘Sustainable Mountain Development for Global Change’ (SMD4GC) program of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, the Mountain Research Initiative is leading an effort to assess sustainable mountain development (SMD) using the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework. Spatially disaggregating SDGs to subnational or transboundary units of space, such as mountain regions, and applying indicator subsets as means to monitor their status, are two emerging considerations relevant for reporting on SMD.
In this session, we propose examining these and other advances and challenges related to the monitoring and assessment of SDGs in mountain regions though tools and data available via GEO Flagships and Initiatives.
Side event registration for GEO Week 2018 is now open.
