For all life upon planet Earth to exist and to have continued existence, regardless of species, or social status, fresh water is absolutely essential. We have been researching the crucial relationship between mixed indigenous mountain forests and the global fresh water cycle. This understanding is now reflected in the 2012 Rio+20 UNCSD Document ‘The Future We Want’.
"We recognize the key role that ecosystems play in maintaining water quantity and quality and support actions within the respective national boundaries to protect and sustainably manage these ecosystems." ('The Future We Want’ Rio+20 2012.)
The key roles that ecosystems, especially mountains, mountain forests and wetlands play in maintaining fresh water quantity and quality globally need to be given top priority and supportive efforts that protect, sustainably manage and restore these ecosystems undertaken as a matter of urgency for water and food security.
We at Active Remedy Ltd consider these issues to be of paramount importance for the sustenance of all life on Earth and central to all Sustainable Development goals. Therefore we are working on finding a viable solution to the environmental problems that are occurring and increasing in Earths' Fresh Water cycle.
We have pinpointed a vital link between this instability and the massive deforestation of the primal indigenous mountain forest, which has occurred throughout mountain regions globally, within the last hundred years. We are therefore dedicated to promoting the awareness of this and to finding practical solutions, which are applicable globally. The preservation and regenerating of indigenous mixed mountain forests as fast as possible is of crucial importance. Hence we are working on initiating reforestation and preservation projects in mountain regions worldwide.
Our purpose is to bring about greater awareness concerning these problems and to find remedies for helping resolve them. It is our goal to ensure that concerted action is taken on both local and global levels to address this situation, while there is still the potential possibility to do so. This way extensive glacial retreat could potentially be reversed.
Hence we have formulated a sustainable development blueprint model that could be a very fast, efficient and adaptable method for the reforestation and preservation of indigenous mountain forests globally. This model combines innovative, restorative and preservation techniques along with practical methods for building and sustaining healthy mountain environments and their communities.
We have termed this model: ‘The Sacred Groves & Green Corridor Method’ for repairing the ‘Roof of the World’. This is a way of working in a supportive, mutually respectful manner with local mountain communities and other traditional communities, recognizing that they play a fundamental role as stewards of water and natural resources that maintain global stability. Creating local green economies and promoting gender equality are fundamental aspects and outcomes of this model.
We are therefore working on initiating and implementing a feasibility study, which could guide a global action plan in the protection, regeneration and repair of the global fresh water cycle. We believe that the research we have gathered and the innovative method, which we have formulated for this purpose, has the potential to be used successfully worldwide. This could be a way of joining many diverse groups and communities together worldwide in interconnected endeavours for the common purpose of safeguarding water and food security along with environmental sustainability for many future generations.
