Conservation of biodiversity has been gaining increased importance, and has even been linked to reduction of armed conflicts. Bhutan, a small country in the eastern Himalayas, has both the traditional ethos and the policies to lead Asia in this field. However, in recent decades, it has had to face the challenge of balancing between economic development and conservation goals.
