YOG RAJ CHHETRI [ FORESTRY OFFICER ]


I work as a researcher at the Forest Science and Technology Center, Yusipang, Thimphu since 2014. I have been working under the research system since my initial appointment in 1999. I have B.Sc. in forestry from the College of Natural Resources, Lobesa, under Royal University of Bhutan (2011- 2013), and Diploma in Forestry from Natural Resources Training Institute, Lobesa (1996-1999).  

I have a strong interest in research related to Sustainable forest management (Forest Ecology) and also have the greater experience in agroforestry, farmland management & dealing with the farming communities.  Currently I am coordinating and leading the biomass activities to develop the species specific allometric equations to estimate the above ground tree biomass and national forest carbon of Bhutan.
