• Message from the Hon’ble Minister, Ministry of Agriculture and Forests on the occasion of the Social Forestry Day, 2nd June 2019

    Royal Government of Bhutan’s Constitutional mandate to maintain 60 percent forest cover in all times to come was promulgated by our beloved and the Great Fourth Druk Gyalpo, Jigme Singye Wangchuck. It is due to His Majesty’s far sighted visions that despite being a small country, Bhutan is acclaimed far and wide as a role model for a balanced conservation and utilization of the natural resources.

    Social Forestry Day coinciding with our beloved Fourth King’s Coronation Day has been widely celebrated across all Schools and Institutions in Bhutan since 1985. Tree planting program on 2nd June every year promotes and highlights the significance of the importance of forests and people’s involvement in the sustainable management of forest. Since 1990s the Social Forestry Programme has evolved into an important forest management regime which includes community and private forests management – putting people in the forefront to protect, utilize and manage the resources on sustainable basis. Forests provide unprecedented benefits to humanity including their role in reducing Climate Change impacts which is threatening the very existence of humanity on this planet. From this year, the programme will be elevated to add Waste Reduction and Management to highlight minimization of contamination in forest and human settlement areas. Contamination of forests also leads to its degradation.
