GWP Bhutan drafted water vision, policy and legislation

Posted: 2009-12-01

In 2001, the Bhutan Government requested the newly formed GWP Bhutan to draft a water vision and policy for the country. By 2002, GWP Bhutan, with support from GWP South Asia, had involved stakeholders and prepared the draft. GWP Bhutan then drew up the Bhutan Water Act, subsequently taken up and finalised by the National Environment Commission.The bill has been delayed by political changes, but Parliament is expected to pass the Act in 2010. The whole process has embedded IWRM concepts firmly into national planning in Bhutan.
