Mongolia (2014)

Energy profile
  • INDC of Mongolia

    Type: 
    National Plan
    Type of National plan: 
    Country: 

    In its INDC, Mongolia has outlined a series of policies and measures that the country commits to implement up to 2030, in the energy, industry, agriculture and waste sectors. The expected mitigation impact of these policies and measures will be a 14% reduction in total national GHG emissions excluding Land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) by 2030, compared to the projected emissions under a business as usual scenario. The INDC also includes an Annex on adaptation.

  • Case Study of XacBank's Energy Efficient Product Distribution Program

    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, July 3, 2012
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia is the coldest capital city in the world. During blistering, eightmonth winters, households meet their heating needs by burning coal in traditional stoves. As a result, the city also ranks as one of the most polluted urban areas on the planet. In 2009, XacBank, Mongolia’s largest microfinance institution (MFI), made a commitment to address this public health threat head-on. To date, XacBank has facilitated the ownership of over 80,000 efficient heating stoves and insulation blankets in Ulaanbaatar’s Ger District.

  • Technology Needs Assessment, Volume 2: Climate Change Mitigation in Mongolia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    This report describes key mitigation technologies in priority sectors for Mongolia, such as large-scale hydro-power plants; wind parks and supercritical coal-fired power plants; energy efficient lighting; and improvement of insulation of panel apartment buildings. The report accesses the barriers and measures as well as provides project ideas for the technologies, including concrete actions for realisation of the technology action plans for each selected technology.

  • Nationally appropriate mitigation actions for grassland and livestock management in Mongolia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, May 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    This policy brief by the Asian Development Bank argues that, given the negative impact of climate change on Mongolia, it is crucial to select mitigation actions that reduce vulnerability to climate change, support the achievement of national development goals, and are feasible given local constraints.

    Key messages from the brief include:

    • Mongolia’s total emissions are low, but its emissions per capita are relatively high and rising and are produced primarily by the energy and agriculture sectors.

  • Changing Taiga: Challenges for Mongolia’s Reindeer Herders

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 1, 2012
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    Mongolia’s reindeer herders and their taiga homeland are today facing unprecedented challenges from unregulated mining, forest logging, loss of access to natural resources, tourism, and climate change.

    The Dukha herders and their ancestors have lived for centuries in this fragile transition region on the edge of the steppes, practising an ancient and unique form of reindeer husbandry and helping to conserve the region’s unique biodiversity. Yet this system of reindeer husbandry, with its close relationship between man and reindeer, is under threat.

  • Sustainable management of common natural resources in Mongolia (Ph III)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, January 1, 2007
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    Communities have coped for millennia through extremes of flood and drought by cooperatively managing shared natural resources, and by cultivating a variety of robust, indigenous crop types that can survive a range of conditions. Knowledge and use of diverse plant types - either planted or foraged - could be key to survival as climate extremes widen. Pasture degradation is very serious and widespread in Mongolia. The problem has been aggravated by three severe winters (1999-2001) characterized by heavy accumulations of snow or ice crusts on pastures.
