Project Description

CURE has contributed to the development of Bhutan’s National Urbanization Strategy and City Development Plan for Thimpu, its capital and largest city, supported by ADB. The strategy and plan were aimed at laying the framework for a sustainable and regionally balanced process of urbanization and urban development in the country. The strategy document was based on understanding of the local context and cultures, and knowledge and ideas gathered through social processes – stakeholder consultations with slum and low-income communities, civil society organizations and government officials. The Plans are an attempt to synergies the feasibility of various proposals and strategies with the local history, cultural context and practices of Bhutan, its tradition land and housing ownership systems and the vision of ensuring Gross National Happiness.
