Potato production in the Phobjikha Valley

The year 2008 is a historical milestone for Bhutan as the country introduces a constitution and a democratic political system. For democracy to function smoothly it is important to empower the rural communities to participate and to articulate their needs and expectations. Potato growers have started to organize themselves in groups to optimize benefits from seed production, quality control in seed production, facilitate marketing and improve access/supply of inputs.

These developments will make a significant contribution towards the objectives of governance and the participation of the rural population in the democratisation process.
