Description

Bhutan is known to have one of the highest per capita domestic fuel wood consumption in the world, at almost 1.17 tonnes per person per year.  With 70 percent of its population living in rural Bhutan, and fuel wood being the main source of energy for cooking, heating and lighting in the rural areas, there is constant and increasing pressure on the forests of Bhutan. The inefficient fuel wood consumption is contributing to deforestation/forest degradation, indoor air pollution and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

To address the above problem, the Sustainable Rural Biomass Energy (SRBE) Project was established in 2013 with the support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the Royal Government of Bhutan (RGoB), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and other funding partners. The project is focused on the promotion and efficient use of biomass energy resources to enhance energy services, primarily in rural areas, and to reduce GHG emissions in Bhutan.

The SRBE project will conclude in December 2016. In accordance with UNDP and GEF monitoring and evaluation policies and procedures, all full and medium-sized UNDP-GEF projects are required to undergo a terminal evaluation upon completion of implementation.
