We are getting ready for Stockholm+50
We launched the National Stakeholder Consultations in Bhutan last month and the second consultation on energy, industry and waste sectors is currently underway. Stockholm+50 is an opportunity for us to draw on our environmental action to achieve bold and urgent action needed to secure a better future on a healthy planet.
In addition to the national stakeholder consultation meetings, we are so excited to bring together Chencho Norbu and Tshering Denkar to share their experiences and views on climate change, and biodiversity loss and nature degradation. VLOG coming out soon on our social media platforms.
The vlog will be premiered on 25 April. Watch it premiere on UNDP Bhutan's Facebook page HERE
