A Consitution for the Environment by the People?

What do you think of the following Article from Bhutan's constitution? Should the people and jobs come first?;

The Government shall ensure that, in order to conserve the country's natural resources and to prevent degradation of the fragile mountain ecosystem, a minimum of sixty percent of Bhutan's total land shall be maintained under forest cover for all time.

- Article 5, Bhutan Constitution
