GPP Bhutan

Green Public Procurement in Bhutan: A Cross Sectoral Strategy for Sustainable Industrial Competitiveness

The project establishes a strategic approach for the government to scale-up public demand for environmentally and socially preferable goods, services and infrastructure. It provides a cross-cutting industrial strategy to support the Gross National Happiness development philosophy, the 11th Five Year Plan (2013-18), 'The Middle Path' National Environment Strategy, and the New Development Paradigm, which together form the core of Bhutanese development priorities.

The project aims to implement GPP practices in Bhutan, harnessing this tool as a driver for green growth. It seeks to:

• lower the direct impact of state-consumption,

• incentivise sustainable production among suppliers,

• build demand-side and supply-side capacity, and

• trigger private sustainable consumption and green economic transformation.

 

Duration: 1/2014 - 7/2017

Total budget: EUR 2,132,307.25 (EU Contribution: 90%)
