As a result of anthropogenic climate change, a staple of Mexican diet, culture and agriculture is at stake: maize. México is predicted to be a region at risk from climate change, comparative to other regions globally, and as a result small-scale farming and agriculture are expected to be in danger. Where do vulnerabilities intersect, what are the solutions being implemented, what are the weaknesses of these solutions and how can future solutions target critical areas of need?

I will investigate the Kingdom of Bhutan, and compare/contrast the country’s environmental and economic policies with those of the United States. Specifically, I want to focus on Bhutan’s unique approach to development, Gross National Happiness (GNH), and how GNH may promote the implementation of policies that encourage democracy and focus on combating social and environmental injustices. A research question I will explore is: How can a shift from measuring the well-being of the economy to measuring the well-being of the people shape future government and economic policies?
