  • XacBank seeking consultants: Mini-grid project preparation in Mongolia

    Type: 
    News
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    XacBank, an Accredited Entity of the Green Climate Fund (GCF), seeks to finance the development of scalable mini-grid/off-grid systems that generate and manage energy flows between clusters of adjacent households in Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar’s ger areas. The systems will be capable of serving multiple end uses (heating, waste processing and/or removal) under an affordable business model to alleviate utility inadequacies and pollution challenges.

  • 2015 Nutrition country profile: Mongolia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    The 193 individual country profiles capture the status and progress of all UN Member States, and the 80+ indicators include a wealth of information on child, adolescent and adult anthropometry and nutritional status, in addition to intervention coverage, food supply, economics, and demography. This tool is particularly useful for nutrition champions at the country-level, as it presents a wide range of evidence needed to assess country progress in improving nutrition and nutrition-related outcomes.

  • Changing Taiga: Challenges for Mongolia’s Reindeer Herders

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    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:
    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.

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

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    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.

  • Conference summary report: The politics of climate change adaptation: taking stock of academic and practitioner experiences

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    This  report  summarizes  key messages from  the  two-day conference “The politics of climate  change  adaptation:  Taking  stock  of  academic  and  practitioner experiences” organized  by  the  Department  of  International  Environment and Development  Studies (Noragric) at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU).
