SAARC development goals mid-term review report 2011: Bhutan
The SAARC Development Goals – Mid-Term Review Report 2011 is the first publication by Bhutan on the progress of SDGs. This publication is a testament of Bhutan’s full commitment in achieving SDGs. The socio-economic development policy in Bhutan is guided by the philosophy of Gross National Happiness, which places equal importance to other areas of development such as health, education, justice, environment and poverty. The report takes stock of the progress made thus far in each of the 22 goals and identifies issues and concerns that require more attention. It is also intended to raise awareness among the decision makers and renew political commitments to these important goals.
