About Us

The Fifth Edition of the Northeast Green Summit would be held from August 6 to August 8, 2020. The Northeast Green Summit was initiated in 2016 to raise awareness and empower people with the knowledge of the rich and diverse natural habitat, bio-diversity and cultural heritage that the North Eastern region of India is bestowed with. Following four successful Summits in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, the Northeast Green Summit 2020 in its Fifth Edition aims to focus on CORONA BIO-DISASTER AFTERMATH: SUSTAINABLE YARDSTICKS TO SAVE OUR PLANET by bringing together stakeholders from all walks of life to deliberate, share experiences and propose solutions to some of the unique challenges being faced in the region.

FOCUS ON CORONA BIO-DISASTER AFTERMATH: SUSTAINABLE YARDSTICKS TO SAVE OUR PLANET

The Fifth Edition of the Summit aims to bring together a multi-disciplinary community of policy makers, academicians and practitioners in the region concerned with closing the gap across sectors, given that environmental sustainability is a key success factor – whether for specific interventions on the ground or long-term strategies.

Key points to be deliberated upon at during the Summit will include:

1. Shutting down markets and routes where wildlife trade is rampant, inside and adjoining NE India.
2. Boosting alternative sustainable livelihood options post COVID-19 pandemic through skilling and other employment avenues. Emphasis on medicinal plants, agriculture, horticulture, food processing and allied sectors, where NE India has an edge.
3. Tourism sector revival and tapping creative, eco-friendly alternatives.
4. Economic revival with judicious intervention of biotechnology.
5. Improved disaster mitigation preparedness for vulnerable NE India.
