How Bhutan is overcoming water challenges magnified by the onset of climate change

UNDP Administrator and UN Under-Secretary General, Achim Steiner assured UNDP’s continued partnership with the Royal Government of Bhutan during his meeting with Prime Minister Dr. Lotay Tshering this morning.
For Bhutan, a tiny carbon-neutral country nestled in the Himalayas between India and China, climate change is not just an environmental problem but a serious challenge to sustainable development.
