Gross National Happiness is a term coined by His Majesty the Fourth King of Bhutan, Jigme Singye Wangchuck in the 1970s. The concept, which influences the whole country, its governance and structure, means that sustainable development should take a holistic approach to notions of progress and to give equal weight to the non-economic aspects of wellbeing, divided into nine regions, domains, in order to create a broad understanding of GNH and to reflect the holistic range of GNH values. The nine domains of wellbeing are: living standard, health, education, time use, good governance, ecological diversity and resilience, inner wellbeing, community social vitality and cultural diversity & resilience.
