Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on Monday said that the world scenario is going to change in the next ten to fifteen years in two major areas - Technology and Climate Change.

Addressing the eighth edition of the Sustainable Mountain Development Summit (SMDS-VIII) here in Meghalaya, Sangma underscored the need to convert the thought processes and policies into actions.

“The world scenario is going to change in the next ten to fifteen years in two major areas that is in Technology where everything will revolve around Artificial Intelligence and the next major change will be Climate Change,” he said

He added that though these changes will bring along a lot of disruptions it will also create a lot of opportunities especially for entrepreneurs.

This year’s mountain summit (SMDS-VIII) focuses on the pressing issues of youth employment and challenges of building a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem to channelize the bubbling energy and aspiration of the young generation in the mountains.

The two-day summit is being jointly hosted by IMI and its Meghalaya chapter, Meghalaya Integrated Mountain Development Initiative (MIMDI).

Sangma further said that there is a need to be ready for these changes and take advantage out of it.

“It is platforms like these that enable us to take stock of the alarming changes and take measures for sustainable development and convert policy aspects into sustainable economic opportunities for entrepreneurs,” he said.

The SMDS-VIII builds on the outcomes of previous seven summits which focussed on issues such as climate change, forests, mountain agriculture and other livelihoods, water, disasters, sustainable cities and drivers of change which threaten the region’s ecological, social and economical well-being.
