Observing Social Forestry Day and Zero Waste Hour by NRDCL

The Country observes the Social Forestry Day on 2nd June of every year coinciding with the Coronation Day of His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singye Wangchuck. Bhutan has earned international acclaim and is considered a role model in the field of environmental conservation. Today, Bhutan is one of the few remaining biological hotspots in the World and the unspoiled environment support thriving population of endangered species. Forests are no doubt fundamental for the well-being of humanity and are intricately linked to the very survival of a mountainous country like ours. Protecting nature today means a better planet for future generations. However, like everywhere in the world, our forests are also under tremendous pressure from both manmade and natural causes. To curb such challenges, community involvement in sustainable forest management has become quite important. In order to support the noble initiative of His Majesty The Fourth Druk Gyalpo and collectively celebrate His Majesty’s leadership in the field of environmental conservation, mass plantation and maintenance of the already planted areas are taken up every year on this day as Social Forestry Day by Natural Resources Development Corporation Limited (NRDCL) by taking up plantation works in addition to its normal activity of raising nursery for seedlings, taking up plantation in blank areas, reforestation in degraded/deforested areas, rehabilitation of fire burnt and pest/disease affected areas in different parts of the Country. As usual, the Regional and Branch Offices of NRDCL took up the maintenance of existing plantation and created new plantation in the respective areas, as follows:

Coinciding with the Coronation Day of His Majesty The Fourth Druk Gyalpo, “Zero Waste Hour” campaign with the theme “My waste, my responsibility” launched by Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen on 2nd June 2019 with an aim to instill a behavioral change for proper waste management and practice sustainable consumption lifestyle is also marked.
