Participation in High-Value Agricultural Markets

Bhutan Agricultural and Food Policy Research and Capacity Strengthening Project

This project seeks to strengthen the capacity of Bhutan’s Ministry of Agriculture to implement policy research on the country’s food, agriculture, and natural resource sectors. It will do this in two ways. First, it aims to contribute to practical policy formulation on selected issues in the food and agricultural sector by analyzing existing policies and help design new policy strategies to maximize Gross National Happiness. Second, the project seeks to strengthen the capacity of Bhutan’s Ministry of Agriculture to design, execute, and communicate policy research. The project is designed to focus on four research
themes:

  • Food security
  • Diversification from staple crops into high-value agriculture
  • Impact of globalization on small farmers
  • Long-term perspectives for the agricultural sector
