SCP Hotspot Analysis Tool identifies priority, high-impact sectors in Bhutan
The Government of Bhutan and the One Planet network collaborated in a training session on the SCP Hotspot Analysis Tool, analysing environmental impacts and pressures in Bhutan. Data from the SCP Hotspot Analysis Tool identified a number of priority and high-impact sectors for SCP in Bhutan, including agriculture, construction, tourism, waste and industry.
The Bhutanese National Environment Commission will lead consultations to identify priority interventions under each of these sectors, with inputs of the relevant partners and experts of the One Planet network.
Bhutan has been one of the first countries to recognise the environment and natural resources as essential pillars of its development and people’s well-being, and expects to launch the National Action Plan on Sustainable Consumption and Production in Bhutan in 2020.

SCP Hotspot Analysis Tool provides three modules to analyse hotspot areas of sustainable consumption and production. For guidance how to use each module check out the auxiliary text boxes.
1. Country Profile
Provides the key information regarding the country’s environmental performance, in the context of the most relevant policy questions. For policy makers, NGOs and the general public
2. Hotspots identification
Provides a wide range of SCP indicators to analyse hotspots of unsustainable consumption and production at country and sector levels.For policy advisors and researchers with expertise.
3. National data system
Provides the option of inserting national datato receive more tailored results. For technical experts such as statisticians.
The Hotspot Analysis Tool for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP-HAT) combines in a single framework national environmental and social data (i.e. territorial accounts) with trade information for the estimation of supply-wide environmental pressure and impact indicators (i.e. footprints).
Domestic data on pressures (e.g. material extraction) and impacts (e.g. deforestation) expressed in physical units (also called ‘satellite accounts’) are linked to monetary data on transactions among economic sectors and final consumers of different countries.
