The SFS Center for Himalayan Environment and Development StudiesPollution & Waste Management
While viewed from the outside as an idyllic land, Bhutan faces major issues of pollution and waste management. Careless littering, especially of plastic waste, is done by both Bhutanese people and visitors. Waste management is a growing concern as there is no recycling plant established in the country. SFS students develop and present ideas and strategies for waste management at the local level.
