    In collaboration with the Royal Government of Bhutan, the Gross National Happiness Commission coordinates the overall implementation and project overview. The project aspires to ensure that an MDGs based monitoring and evaluation system is integrated into the national monitoring and evaluation system.


UNDP provides assistance for poverty reduction in Bhutan by implementing results based policy, plans and programmes geared towards poverty reduction and the attainment of the MDGs and other national priorities. UNDP supports the Royal Government of Bhutan in creating enabling environments for private sector growth, cottage and small rural enterprises; addressing the environment-poverty relationship in terms of conservation of bio-diversity with rural people's need to access natural resources for sustainable livelihoods; and realizing benefits from the integration into the global and regional economy, capacity building for trade negotiations and export promotion.
