From global ambition to country action: Bhutan steps towards low-carbon climate-resilient development

Many LDCs are working towards strengthening their national policy and legislative frameworks to implement climate action and play their part in global ambition to achieve the overarching goals of the Paris Agreement. Although each country operates within distinct political, institutional, socioeconomic and environmental contexts, there are many overarching constraints and priorities, and sharing experiences with each other is invaluable to support mutual learning. Yet, few opportunities exist for LDCs to compare their experiences, success stories and challenges about how implementation and climate action unfold at the national level. This case study on Bhutan seeks to showcase the country’s experience in the process of implementing global climate commitments.
