NFTC Celebrated International Mountain Day

Covering around 27 percent of the earth’s land surface, mountains play a critical role in moving the world towards sustainable economic growth. They not only provide sustenance and wellbeing to 720 million mountain people around the world, but indirectly benefit billions more living downstream” said Sandeep Marwah Managing Director of National Federation of Tourism And Transport Cooperatives of India Ltd. and Ambassador of IHRO affiliated to United Nation in a meeting at Marwah Studios to celebrate International Mountain Day.

“In particular, mountains provide freshwater, energy and food – resources that will be increasingly scarce in coming decades. However, mountains also have a high incidence of poverty and are extremely vulnerable to climate change, deforestation, land degradation and natural disasters” added Marwah.

Sandeep Marwah informed media persons that the challenge is to identify new and sustainable opportunities that can bring benefits to both highland and lowland communities and help to eradicate poverty without contributing to the degradation of fragile mountain ecosystems.
