Mongolia: Environment Sector Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | January 2018
Mongolia’s unique landscapes support rich natural resources and rural livelihoods. However, economic growth and a growing population, combined with impacts from climate change, are contributing to the decline of its natural resources, including forest and water; and causing air, soil, and water pollution. The Asian Development Bank (ADB), Mongolia’s lead international development partner, has been supporting the government, civil society, and communities to address these issues since 1991, when Mongolia became a member. ADB’s environment portfolio in Mongolia is guided by a country partnership strategy (CPS),1 which is updated and agreed upon between the Government of Mongolia and ADB every 4–5 years. The CPS gives flexibility to the portfolio and enables ADB to respond to new and emerging issues, and to continue supporting existing projects. The current CPS (2017–2020) includes priority areas such as environmental policy reform, natural resource management, pollution reduction, disaster risk management, and adaptation and mitigation to climate change impacts.
