Establishing An Inter-Ministerial Committee To Ensure Synergies With All Sectors: The Case Of Bhutan

In Bhutan, synergy and coherence among existing biodiversity policies and acts was identified as a serious gap in the implementation of previous NBSAPs. Therefore, the National Task Force was established to develop the new NBSAP, to oversee liaison with National Focal Points of the other Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs), including the biodiversity-related conventions. In particular, a mapping exercise was undertaken to show the relevance of national targets across the MEAs.

Building Resilient Housing In Bhutan; Building Better Lives For Women

The UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Initiative in collaboration with the Representation Office of Denmark supported the Tarayana Foundation to demonstrate how rural communities like the Dak villagers can use natural resources more sustainably and inclusively to improve their standard of living by means of eco-resilient housing. The Dak community traditionally live in provisional homes made of banana leaves and un-treated bamboo, needing replacement every three years and prone to damage from rain and wind.
