Imphal, August 10 2019: Youths from the Eastern Himalayan Region (Manipur, Meghalaya, Tripura, Nagaland, Assam and Bangladesh) during a 3 days meeting held at DSSS, Mantripukhri from 7th to 9th August had agreed that the present crisis of Climate Change in our respective region.

The meet considered Climate Change as one of the greatest challenges humankind has ever faced.

Rising temperatures and changing weather patterns exacerbate existing natural or human-made hazards or generate new ones.

The poorest inhabitants of our planet are among the most vulnerable, mainly due to weak natural, financial, social, human and physical capacities to deal with the consequences of climate change and natural or human-made hazards.

The rights of the world's Indigenous Peoples, local communities, youths and the women within these groups is a scalable climate solution, and that all actors should make us partners in climate protection efforts.

Our traditional knowledge and sustainable stewardship of the world's lands and forests are key to reducing global emissions to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees by 2030 .

We have cared for our lands and forests-and the biodiversity they contain-for generations.

With the right support we can continue to do so for generations to come.

During the meet it has been agreed that various dimensions on the impacts and contributing impacts on the global climate crisis such as (1) the indigenous plants leading on the verge of extinction, (2) changing period of agricultural practices leading to less production, (3) increase in work load on indigenous women in the community in order to manage the domestic work as the indigenous women has to go far to fetch water, (4) destruction of indigenous people's forest due to large scale infrastructural projects, (5) climate refugees leading to demographic changes in our region, (6) increase in exploration and extraction of fossil fuel, (7) increase in natural resources mining activities without the free prior and informed consent of the IPs, etc are some of the major facts arises during the meet.

The meet also discussed some major goals of SDGs 2030 like - Goal No.13 Climate Change Take Urgent Action To Combat Climate Change And Its Impacts; Goal No.15 life on land protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss; Goal No 16 peace justice and strong institution promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels; Goal No 17 Partnership for Goals Strengthen The Means Of Implementation And Revitalize The Global Partnership For Sustainable Development .

The meet also lambasted the authority for not consulting the stakeholders while preparing the National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) .

The Eastern Himalayan Youth Meet on Climate Change (Imphal), 2019 has agreed to focus and work on Judicious stewardship of land utilization and resources so as to maintain and perpetuate intergenerational legacy in that extractive industries should be discouraged /phased out/stopped; "development", industrial activities contributing to loss of biodiversity, deforestation, desertification, loss of land and livelihood, water contamination, land degradation and air pollution, genetic mutation should undertake environment impact assessment and social impact assessment periodically, this includes GM foods, GM seeds and GM livestocks.
