According to a DIPR report, while delivering the keynote address, DC Wokha, Orenthung Lotha introduced the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and emphasised on how there should be concentrated efforts by all stakeholders to bring about sustainable development. Climate change is a global phenomenon which involves loss of human lives and property thus we need concerted efforts to bring sustainable development, DC said.
