Over the course of two weeks, stakeholders of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) supported project ‘Supporting climate resilience and transformational change in the agriculture sector in Bhutan’, shared experiences and lessons from the field - best practices, successes, challenges, personal anecdotes and the way forward.
For resilient and sustainable economic well-being of the people of Bhutan through climate adaptation in the water sector.
The people of Jagathang village in Paro have come together to build a water tank so they have access to uninterrupted supply of water through the year. The water catchment management project, implemented by Chithuen Tshopga, a local community-based organization is supported by the GEF-Small Grants Programme through UNDP and the Royal Government of Bhutan.
Rural-urban migration has been a longstanding issue in the development discourse and planning, one without a silver bullet solution. While youth prefer migrating to urban areas looking for employment, there are also those choosing to return home, taking up commercial farming and becoming successful agricultural entrepreneurs.
Coinciding with the International Youth Day, the fourth installment of the climate series, “Raising Climate Ambition: Voices from Bhutan” jointly organized by National Environment Commission (NEC), UNDP, Bhutan Foundation, Royal University of Bhutan (RUB), WWF, UNCDF and Bhutan Ecological Society (BES), was held on 12th August, in Thimphu. Titled “Youth Matters: Voices and Action in Climate Change”, the objective of series IV was to listen to the concerns of the youth around climate issues, their initiatives and actions against the crisis, and to ensure the assimilation of their world view into climate solutions.
The video challenge is a call for green, sustainable, and innovative ideas, actions, and solutions. It seeks to celebrate the voices, actions and contributions of young people and empower them to take the lead in the fight against the global climate crisis.
