Since 1988, SNV has been designing scalable and impact-oriented programmes within the Agriculture, Energy and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene sectors in Bhutan. We operate under a country agreement with the Royal Government of Bhutan (RGoB), ensuring that all activities align with the country's national development priorities.

Our programmes strengthen the position of smallholder farmers, supporting them to access markets with better crops or products. We support the implementation of market-based domestic biogas programmes with a view to establish a commercially viable biogas sector. We also work in both urban and rural contexts to promote district and town wide access to improved sanitation and hygiene practices, market driven sanitation supply chains and a responsive institutional set-up to ensure access for all.
