In order to facilitate direct participation of the people in the development and management of their own social, economic and environmental wellbeing through decentralization and devolution of power and authority; and
Recognizing that Local Governments are elected bodies to represent the interests of local communities and to fulfil their aspirations and needs;
The National Assembly of Bhutan hereby enacts the Local Governments’ Act of Bhutan as follows:
Bhutan’s planned development started in 1961 when the 1st Five-Year Plan (FYP) was initiated. Currently, the RGoB is on the threshold of starting the 10th FYP from 2008. This is the first study to assess the impact of the last 45 years of planned development and the effectiveness of planning procedures on rural development.
