Crisis Prevention and Recovery


    Bhutan is prone to natural hazards due to its fragile geological conditions, steep terrain, vulnerable ecosystem, great elevation differences, variable climatic conditions and active tectonic processes taking place in the Himalayas.

  • Reducing CC induced risks from GLOFs

    The most significant climate change impact in Bhutan is the formation of supra-glacial lakes due to the accelerated retreat of glaciers with increasing temperatures.

  • National Human Settlements Policy

    Bhutan’s urbanization rate is one of the highest in the world (7% during 2003-2005). According to the Population and Housing Census in 2005, 31% of country’s population was living in urban areas.

  • Capacity building in disaster & climate resilient construction

    The context of recent geophysical and hydro-meteorological disasters underscore the importance of regulatory measures such as safe building practices, urban planning, building codes and by-laws as well as need for greater awareness and technical knowhow with regard to building construction and conservation of cultural monuments.

Environment and Energy

  • Bhutan Sustainable Rural Biomass Energy

    Bhutan has one of the highest per capita consumption of fuel wood in the world at almost 1.3 tonnes per person.The SRBE Project was initiated to reduce the annual biomass/ fuel wood consumption and GHG emissions in Bhutan.

  • Integrating gender into climate change policy and programmes

    Gender mainstreaming at project level means energy and environment (E&E) projects are designed to ensure that both women and men equally participate and benefit from a project. In some cases, women may be more disadvantaged than men in similar circumstances.

  • HCFC Phase-out Management Plan for Bhutan

    The HCFC phase-out management plan of Bhutan stems from the firm commitment to protect and preserve the environment and to maintain the negative carbon emission status.
