SLM Project

The Sustainable Land Management Project (SLMP) is a project to address the issue of land and natural resource management to minimize and reverse land degradation. It aims at realizing global and national environmental benefits from introducing cross sectoral land management planning and implementation in selected pilot sites and at bringing lessons learnt up to policy level for amendments of both planning procedures and regulatory framework. Local community resource-based planning within an ecosystem approach constitutes the foundation for the project. SLMP is proactively addressing the issue of land and natural resource management to minimize and reverse land degradation.

A key goal includes the strengthening of institutional and community capacity to anticipate and manage land degradation in Bhutan via 4 major program components:


1. Pilot projects to demonstrate effective application of land degradation prevention approaches in three geogs;
2. Mainstreaming and replication of practices for protection against land degradation;
3. Policy support and guidance for mainstreaming land degradation prevention practices; and
4. National level support for coordination of implementation of land degradation prevention practices.
