MORE ABOUT ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY
Bhutan has placed environmental conservation at the center of its development strategy and it forms one of the four pillars of Gross National Happiness. In addition, the Constitution of Bhutan mandates that at least 60% of the country remain forested for all time (currently 70.5%). Bhutan is one of the few countries in the world with net greenhouse gas sequestration capacity largely due to its vast forest cover and widespread use of hydropower and biomass energy.
