Bhutan is a little known country enclaved between India and Tibet.

This small himalayan nation has a strong comitment to conserve its natural heritage. 70% of its territory is currently covered by forests, the goal to maintain a cover on 60% of its territory was written in its constitution. 51% of Bhutan land is covered by protected areas. It is home by more than 100 tigers, some of them located at 4200 masl. The first snow leopard nation census ever made in the world was led in Bhutan in 2016, resulting in an estimated 100 snow leopards for the country. The country comited to increase the snow leopard population by 2022 and even fixed a goal to increase its tiger population by 20% by 2022.

 

To ensure sustainability of this heritage, it can rely on nationional and external funds. And it decided to elaborate a transitional fund that woud supply the gap in its funding to ensure all the activities needed to achieve its goals.
