Bhutan's Environment

Sustainable Development and conservation are national priorities in Bhutan, which has one of the world’s best environmental records. Roughly 70% of the country is covered with forests, which provide habitat to a remarkable diversity of plants and animal species.

Organic Farming and low-impact agriculture are hallmarks of Bhutan’s development strategy. Although the nation has been growing at a rapid pace with new industrial formation, the majority of people still derive their livelihood from the land.
