The sustainable management of natural resources is one of the main axes of the LIFE Ecodigestion 2.0 project. Focusing on the reuse of putrescible organic waste, it is committed to the generation of green energy without the need for raw materials. This 2022 has been chosen as the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development to promote and raise awareness of the need to make sustainable use of the resources that this ecosystem offers us, thus preserving biodiversity and ensuring a sustainable future for the environment.
Pollution has a direct impact on mountains, increasing the likelihood of thawing, deforestation or land degradation. One of the primary objectives of the LIFE project is to contribute to SDG 6 on universal access to water and sanitation. In this respect, mountains play an essential role. They are natural water reservoirs that the planet cannot afford to destroy. Moreover, most major rivers originate in mountains and are areas with abundant rainfall. It is estimated that, in humid areas, up to 60 per cent of freshwater in watersheds comes from mountains.
The joint public-private work and the awareness and commitment of citizens are necessary for the preservation of biodiversity and the resources offered by the mountains and nature in general.
From LIFE Ecodigestion 2.0, we encourage you to learn more about this international year designated by the United Nations and to make responsible use of your water consumption.
