A SIPA workshop team consisting of seven students worked with the Centre for Bhutan Studies and Gross National Happiness Research to review the Government of Bhutan’s mainstreaming of its “gross national happiness” philosophy through its policies, programs and projects. Based on a thorough literature review, field research and data analysis, the team provided five recommendations to help strengthen the government’s capacity to more effectively align its policies with GNH philosophy. These included 1) institutionalizing formal training programs across all government agencies, 2) developing an objective monitoring and evaluation tool, 3) increasing transparency by establishing dialogue with stakeholders beyond government ministries, 4) instituting a culture and practice of evaluation, and 5) enhancing coordination among government agencies.
