COP28 Bhutan Pavilion Sustaining Carbon Neutrality

Partnership for Restoration activity

RSPN and Punatsangchhu-I Hydroelectric Project Authority (PHPA-I) signed a joint  agreement in restoring some of the degraded areas within the project landscape that is also the important habitat of White-bellied Heron. The agreement signing carried out yesterday was attended by officials from PHPA-I led by Joint Managing Director and from RSPN led by Executive Director.

The restoration activity to be done through plantation will benefit in rewilding the area and significantly contribute in restoring the habitat of heron. Much larger impact would be helping in mitigating the climate change through sequestration of greenhouse gases.

The restoration activity is part of the ongoing BMUV-IKI project funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection(BMUV), Germany through International Climate Initiative (IKI) with co-funding from MAVA Foundation, Switerland and the (RSPN).
