  • World Forestry Day 21st March 2016

    The World Forestry Day with theme on “how do forest contribute to our water needs” will be celebrated on World Water Day 2016 on 22nd March 2016 jointly by Department of Forests & Park Services (DoFPS) and National Environment Commission at Samtengang Central School, Wangdue Phodrang. To mark the occasion, DoFPS will be launching Integrated Watershed Management Plan for Baychhu Watershed under Wangdue Dzongkhag. The plan document is developed in an integrated and collaborative manner involving all relevant entities at the watershed level. The approach will be gradually scaled up to cover other degraded watersheds in the entire country based on environmentally sustainable, economically efficient, and socio-culturally equitable and acceptable code of practices. The approach adopted in developing the plan will help in the implementation of National Integrated Water Resource Management Plan (NIWRMP) 2016 developed by NEC.

    To commemorate the World Forestry Day, a TV Spot on Watershed Management will also be aired on BBS channel in the evening of March 22, 2016.
