Environment
Bhutan has one of the most unspoiled environments and landscapes in Asia. However, the high population growth rate, urbanization, and overwhelming population density have left Bhutan vulnerable to the devastating effects of climate change.1 Over time, the usage of land and irrigation systems have increased the need for water, while water availability has decreased.2 Moreover, it has been very difficult for the government to develop a climate change mitigation plan since the country encompasses so many different variations of topography.3 In recent years, there have been an increase in flash floods, as well as outbreaks in malaria and dengue fever.4

Bhutan's economy, small and less developed, is based on agriculture and forestry, which provide the main livelihood for more than 40% of the population. Agriculture consists largely of subsistence farming and animal husbandry. Rugged mountains dominate the terrain and make the building of roads and other infrastructure difficult and expensive. The economy is closely aligned with India's through strong trade and monetary links and is dependent on India's financial assistance. The industrial sector is technologically backward with most production of the cottage industry type. Most development projects, such as road construction, rely on Indian migrant labor. Model education, social, and ...See More environment programs are underway with support from multilateral development organizations. Each economic program takes into account the government''s desire to protect the country's environment and cultural traditions. For example, the government, in its cautious expansion of the tourist sector, encourages visits by upscale, environmentally conscientious tourists. Complicated controls and uncertain policies in areas such as industrial licensing, trade, labor, and finance continue to hamper foreign investment. The import of equipment and fuel to build hydropower plants is leading to large trade and current account deficits, though new hydropower projects and electricity exports to India are creating employment and will probably sustain growth in the coming years.
