Bhutan forced to lock down its border with India

Amid the COVID 19 Pandemic, Bhutan was forced to lock down all its border with India and imports of all essential commodities were halted.

Despite many challenges these communities are facing, their resilience, adaptiveness and the drive to pursue self-sufficiency has against many expectations ensured that the project could over come a number of challenges.

The closing of boarders internationally, with the resulting reduced access to commodities and increased food prices has further emphasised the need for locally produced goods.
