What is Gross National Happiness(GNH)?

“Gyalyong gakyid pelzom” in official Bhutanese language

GNH in Dzongkha(the official language of Bhutan) is called Gyalyong Gakyid Pelzom. GNH is a sustainable approach that guides development in Bhutan and is framed by the fourth king of Bhutan. He formulated the concept of GNH to achieve the well being of people, along with socio-economic development. The four pillars of GNH are:

1- Good Governance

2- Sustainable socio-economic development

3- Preservation and promotion of culture and

4- Environmental conservation

These four pillars of GNH are further elaborated into 9 domains. These 9 domains form the basis of GNH as the screening tool for development. Unlike GDP, GNH focuses on the balance between material and non-material development.
