Here is a paper that may prove useful in efforts towards achieving the Goals and Targets set out in the UN Sustainable Development Agenda ‘Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’, which was finalised and agreed upon by world governments at the UN Summit, New York, September 2015. It is an Active Remedy submission towards the UN ‘Global Sustainable Development Report 2019’ and was accepted in December 2017.

It is intended to aid in putting the Goals and Targets of the UN Agenda: ‘Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ into perspective and to offer an innovative framework for practical action that could be useful in implementing them. It highlights the hydrological cycle as a major issue, not explicitly taken into account in this Agenda and focuses upon the interconnectedness between the hydrological cycle, climate and the Sustainable Development Goals.

It offers a seemingly simple, yet possibly crucial change of perspective towards approaching and achieving the Goals and Targets. A ‘water cycle based perspective’ could change the very way that we collectively approach both sustainable development and human induced climate change for the better.

Spurred by increasing instability in the climate systems and the global water cycle and the related increase of natural disasters, Active Remedy Ltd. has formulated an innovative method that can be applied and adapted to facilitate ecological restoration, preservation and adaptation efforts around world. This method is called The Sacred Groves and Green Corridors (SGGC) method.

The SGGC method has been formulated in conjunction with traditional indigenous mountain people over many years. It offers a diversity of approaches that understand, respect and are adaptable to local ecosystems, values, spiritual customs and taboos. It is a horticultural method of working directly with mountain communities that integrates modern and traditional knowledge conservation methods, along with long-term sustainability concepts. It does this through combining the conservation methods of sacred groves, green-corridors/ greenbelts, permaculture and companion planting.

On the 30th of March 2016 the Secretariat of the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) wrote to us inviting us to contribute towards a worldwide database on the use of Local, Indigenous and Traditional Knowledge and Practices for Climate Adaptation. In response to this request, we submitted this Report outlining the SGGC Method.
