The Climate + Change handbook provides background information on the impacts of climate change in Bhutan. This document discusses the hazards that will be influenced by the changing climate and recommendations for action. It notes that factors including income poverty, remoteness from economic activity, schools or hospitals, limited local governance capacity, and little awareness of risks and other markers of disadvantage define the country's vulnerability to climate change. In this context, sustaining progress and confronting the demands of equity are critical issues for Bhutan. The sustainability of human development progress requires that recognition be given to the scarcity and use of resources as well as the consideration of future generations to have similar, if not greater, freedom of use.
