Climate Change Adaptation in Bhutan

A major proportion of Bhutan’s population is settled in fertile valleys along a number of river systems. When Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs) occurs the lives and property of many people are at risk. The NCAP supported a GLOF hazard zonation mapping exercise along the Puna Tsang Chu from Khuruthang to Lhamoizingkha.

The methodology used included spatial data analysis (GLOF hazard analysis), field verification and sensitivity analysis.
