Mr. Tsheten Dorji, Dy. Chief Soil Survey & Land Evaluation Officer as the Principal Investigator (PI) and Mr. Dawa Tashi, Sr. Soil Survey & Land Evaluation Officer as Co-PI attended AFACI (Asian Food and Agriculture Cooperation Initiative) Project Evaluation Workshop on Soil from 07-11 August 2023 in Bangkok, Thailand. AFACI has financially supported Bhutan on Project titled Development of the Soil Atlas of Asia and National Soil Information Ststem of Bhutan. The implementation of the project started in October 2019 and will come to an end in October 2023.
The key output from this project is the development of National Soil Map and Soil Information of Bhutan through nationwide Reconnaissance soil survey. The generation of soil type map and other gridded maps of soil properties and salinity mapping will go a long way in making informed planning and decision of sustainable soil and land management in the country. Noting the great success of the first project, we are hopeful that we will get a follow project from AFACI. On behalf of the Royal Government of Bhutan, we would like to express our sincere thank you to AFACI for your generous financial and technical support. We look forward to receiving same.
