    Context

    The transport sector accounts for Bhutan's highest energy-related GHG emissions, totaling 44% of all energy related emissions and over 7% from the sector in the overall GHG emissions. Bad road quality and a difficult terrain, which hinders road expansion, creates challengs to managing transport. A stakeholder’s consultation during Bhutan's Technology Needs Assessment Project, recommended the use of advanced technologies as a part of the potential solution.
