• JSWNP supplies CGI sheets to the rural poor in Trongsa

    JSWNPa13 March 2014, Trongsa: Since its establishment in 1995, Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park has put tireless efforts in delivering Integrated Conservation and Development Programmes in the National Park to address both the conservation of biodiversity as well as fulfilling the aspirations of local people for socio-economic development in their communities. Besides other ICD Programmes, JSWNP in the past initiated the supply of solar lighting facilities and CGI roofing materials to the villagers through support from Biodiversity Conservation Project (BCP) Phase I & II, with funding from Sustainable Development Agreement (SDA). With the mission to conserve and manage its Natural Biodiversity in Harmony with People‘s Values and Aspiration, delivering such ICDP activities meets the conservation goals of contributing to the socio-economic development of park residents through sustainable use of park natural resources.

    However, with the ending of the Biodiversity Conservation Project Phase II in mid-2007, and with no other support from any other agencies, all ICDP activities in the national park had to be halted. This left many households without availing equal opportunity in receiving the CGI supplies. Fortunately, the ongoing WWF-UK funded project helped bridge the gap, thus bringing back smiles to the destitute households.
