Tiny Bhutan redefines 'progress'
Quote:
The Bhutanese understand that well-being and happiness depend on a healthy environment. They vow to protect 60 per cent of forest cover in their country, are already carbon-neutral (they generate electricity from hydro) and have vowed to make their entire agriculture sector organic. They have snow leopards, elephants, rhinos, tigers and valleys of tree-sized rhododendrons – and know their happiness depends on protecting them.

Bhutan becomes happiness lab for Western economists

Energy export will earn Bhutan Nu 45B by 2018
Quote:
However, net revenue, after adjusting for annual debt repayment, works out to Nu 22B

Bhutan’s yearly gross revenue from hydropower export to India would be around Nu 45B by early 2018, according to estimates made by a private research firm.

By that time, Punatsangchu I, II and Mangdechu are expected to be commissioned and generating power. While these three new projects would earn around Nu 34B annually, the projects existing today – Tala, Chukha, Kurichu and Basochu – earn Nu 11B annually.

The estimated revenue figure has been arrived after considering total generation by each project and a unit price of generation.

According to the generation tariff revision proposal by the Druk Green Power corporation (DGPC), the estimated price of electricity for Punatsangchu I is estimated to be Nu 3.49 a unit, Nu 2.97 a unit for Punatsangchu II and Nu 2.79 a unit for Mangdechu.

The tariff indicated in the proposal has been arrived at according to the norms set by India’s central electricity regulatory commission (CERC).

Is there room for urbanisation in Bhutan?
Quote:

Thimphu June 17, 2013 1:00 am

Bhutan will have to "negotiate and compromise" other priorities to find adequate land for urban development, says Hee Nam-jung, a South Korean research fellow from the Korean Institute for Human Settlement (KRIHS).

"Bhutan will have to find a middle way," Nam-jung told urban planners and works and human settlement officials at a three-day South Asian regional workshop on "Promoting access to affordable land and housing" in Thimphu, which ended on June 5.
Quote:
While more and more people are pouring into the towns every year, he said the development of the urban centres has not received as much attention as the development of rural areas in the country.

"The reality is that people are now moving into urban areas. So we have a challenge there," he said. "The focus in Bhutan is on rural development rather than on urban development."

The constitution of Bhutan maintains that 60 per cent of the country should be covered by forest for all time to come.

"On one hand we have agricultural land to be protected, and on the other hand we have to maintain 60 per cent forest coverage," Megraj said. "So where do we go from here?"

Another Works and Human Settlement official said there were many problems in protecting the cultural and heritage precincts. The establishment in 1974 of a central town planning committee to guide urban development kicked off the process of town planning in the country.

However, Works and Human Settlement officials said it was unsuccessful then because no donors were interested in supporting infrastructure development in the country.

The ministry's "Bhutan Urbanisation Strategy", drawn up to ensure balanced and equitable regional development, projects that by 2020 more than half of the country's population will live in urban areas.

After Ladakh: Chinese Army intrudes into Bhutan’s territory
http://stratrisks.com/geostrat/13589

Quote:
After intruding into the Indian territory of Ladakh, China has made a foray into Bhutan, India’s neighbor and one of its closest allies, according to an intelligence note in possession of the Indian news channel, Times Now.

The channel reported that China’s People Liberation Army (PLA) had intruded into Bhutan and set up three camps and was carrying out patrols.
Sino-Bhutan Boundary Negotiations: Complexities of the ‘Package Deal’
http://www.idsa.in/idsacomments/Sino..._mbisht_190110

Quote:
The history of border talks go back to the 1950s when China published maps claiming Bhutanese territory, thus bringing the issue into the public domain. The disputed areas that China claimed covered a total of 764 square kilometres covering the North West (269 sq km) and Central parts of Bhutan (495 sq km). While the North West part constitutes the Doklam, Sinchulung, Dramana and Shakhatoe in Samste, Haa and Paro districts, the Central parts constitute the Pasamlung and the Jakarlung valley in the Wangdue Phodrang district. The intrusion by Chinese soldiers and Tibetan herders has often been an issue of concern in Bhutan’s National Assembly discussions, where many chimis (district representatives) have claimed that traditionally the land always belonged to Bhutan and historically there has been no precedence of Bhutan paying taxes to the Tibetan government for any of the disputed claims.

<snipped>

The protracted nature of Sino-Bhutan boundary talks and the continuous Chinese intrusions into Bhutanese territory reveals the strategic element embedded in the package deal. In November 2007, Chinese forces dismantled several unmanned posts near the Chumbi valley. This, analysts put it, has “distorted the Sino-Bhutanese border near Sikkim,” with Chinese forces only a few kilometres away from the Siliguri corridor. Chumbi Valley, a vital tri-junction between Bhutan, India and China border, is significant as it is 500 km from Siliguri corridor—the chicken neck which connects India to North East India and Nepal to Bhutan. Meanwhile Chumbi Valley is of geostrategic importance to China because of its shared borders with Tibet and Sikkim. The North-Western areas of Bhutan which China wants in exchange for the Central areas lie next to the Chumbi Valley tri-junction. Thus the potential consequences of an exchange deal would raise strategic concerns in India.

RailTel to set up Bhutan’s broadband network
Quote:
After Prime Minister Manmohan Singh assured Bhutan of support in the light of the recent controversy over India cutting fuel subsidies to the kingdom, RailTel, the telecom arm of the Indian Railways, has been given the task of setting up Bhutan's national broadband internet network. RailTel will lay the broadband network connecting all government institutes and the universities in Bhutan to help the country overcome its networking shortcomings and bring a more coordinated approach to development.

Bhutan looks to Australia for workforce help
Quote:


Sandwiched between India and China, the Kingdom of Bhutan is most famous for its ranking as the happiest country in Asia.

But maintaining that happiness while also having a productive workforce is an area of focus for the country.

A delegation of 12 people from Bhutan recently visited Mildura and Robinvale, in northern Victoria, to tour TAFEs, universities and farms and learn about workforce development.

An Amazing 103 Wild Tigers Counted in Bhutan

‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’ Completes First Wild Tiger Survey



Quote:
Bhutan is home to an amazing 103 wild tigers—an increase from a previous estimate of 75 that was not based on actual field surveys—according to the country’s first-ever tiger survey released on Global Tiger Day [July 29].

Conducted entirely by Bhutanese scientists, the survey spanned habitats ranging from snowy, cold mountains in the north—where both tigers and snow leopards roam wild—down to dense, subtropical forests in the south. Tigers are identified by the pattern of their stripes, which are much like human fingerprints in being unique to each individual. World Wildlife Fund (WWF) worked closely with the government of Bhutan to provide technical support and funds for the count.
