Bhutan Policy Note : Harnessing Spatial Opportunities in Agriculture for Economic Transformation

This Policy Note reviews Bhutan’s recent agricultural transformation from a spatial perspective and suggests measures to make further progress. The discussion focuses on crop-level drivers of productivity and spatial patterns of agricultural production in relation to markets, especially in relation to opportunities for expanding market potential to support the national development goals of the Royal Government of Bhutan (RGoB). The government has set targets in a number of policy areas where agriculture plays a critical role.
