Supporting Climate Resilience and Transformational Change in the Agriculture Sector in Bhutan

Addressing climate change challenges and enhancing the resilience of smallholder farmers in eight districts of Bhutan through integrated climate-resilient agriculture. 

As a landlocked and mountainous Least Developed Country, Bhutan is highly vulnerable to climate change – with statistically significant increases recorded in both the length of the dry season and indices of extremes in daily rainfall.

This project will promote climate resilient agricultural practices, integrate climate change risk data into water and land management to support smallholders, and reduce the risk and impact of climate change-induced landslides during extreme events that disrupt market access. The project will be implemented with the Kingdom of Bhutan acting through its Gross National Happiness Commission (GNHC) as the executing entity.

This project has an estimated lifespan of 26 years.
