Bottom-up participatory planning is an ongoing practice within and outside government planning processes in the Hindu Kush Himalaya. Community-led micro-planning begins at the grassroots level. Ideally it influences higher level planning and represents grassroots population in the decision-making process. Many communities have become more vulnerable and face greater risks due to climate and other changes including development interventions driven by outsiders. Community people have few options and limited capacity to cope with and adapt to current and future threats. Most countries in the developing world including Bhutan have recognized this challenge and the need to devise local strategies and solutions through bottom-up participatory planning processes. Community-led micro-planning is part of the strategy of the Support to Rural Livelihoods and Climate Change Adaptation Programme (Himalica) of ICIMOD to ensure the sustainability of pilot interventions by fostering local leadership and people’s participation.
