New tools for healthy rivers in Mongolia
Ulaanbaatar, August 13, 2008 — Irresponsible mining practices have polluted the rivers of Mongolia. The Asia Foundation, through its landmark environmental project, “Securing Our Future,” is helping to influence the development of mining in an environmentally responsible way for the benefit of all Mongolians.
An important element of the program is teaching simple water quality monitoring techniques, which can be performed by students. Earlier this year, Mongolian teachers visited the U.S. to learn how to engage their students in the scientific process and teach water quality monitoring in schools. The teachers are learning experiential techniques which are still relatively uncommon in Mongolia.
One of their newest tools, made possible through The Asia Foundation’s support, is a series of illustrated educational posters about a river’s ecosystem.
