There are lots of issues concerning with the supply of woods to the society for the constructions, Thing is we need to preserve the forest which the constitution itself states. Now the problem here is that why those Saw-Millers are not ready to change the sawing technology which it could save lots of timber and can make it available for the large society rather then adapting on old technology and creating more waste then what it can actually provide. Changing into new technology can actually maintain the % of forest needed in the constitution and side by can also meet the demand of the society.
The GNH Commission told a gathering of Civil Society organisations and individuals on 16th Nov. that 90% of the crime occur in Thimphu. Topping the list is assault and battery, followed by car accidents and burglary.
While not surprising, it is also something that we could resolve if we all worked at it. After all, the capital is where all our planners, thinkers, decision-makers live. The government is placing emphasis on screening all policies to ensure GNH – and have identified key gaps like the lack of community and increasing stress in cities.
once identified, how can we all address these gaps? How can we contribute to reducing the growing crime in the capital?
Are there any suggestions for civil society, for individuals, for companies and youth to take action to build community in Thimphu and to jointly work at creating a safer place for everyone in the capital city?
