SLANT Bhutan: Forest Ecosystem Services in Bhutan

SLANT Bhutan: Forest Ecosystem Services in Bhutan

Mountain forest ecosystems provide a wide range of direct and indirect benefits to the people who live in the mountains and downstream. Occupying steep slopes at high elevation, Bhutan’s forest ecosystems provide services such as slope stabilization, regulation of hydrological cycles, maintenance of rich biodiversity and support for rural livelihoods. To manage these services sustainably, their diverse benefits must be recognized, assessed and valued. To date, there has been little assessment of forest ecosystem services in Bhutan, and particularly using field-based data.
