Mongolia: Engaging Stakeholders For Environmental Conservation
In November we launched an ambitious new environmental program, Engaging Stakeholders for Environmental Conservation (ESEC), a three-year project to mobilize government agencies and citizen groups to address the development of Mongolia’s mineral sector.
A landlocked country between Russia and China, Mongolia is historically the home of nomadic herders. But the country has huge deposits of metals and minerals coveted by its industrialized neighbors. Whether this national wealth leads to development or devastation depends on how Mongolia manages it.
Since 2006, we have been supporting national dialogue and civic engagement in resource-use decisions affecting the long-term prosperity of all Mongolians.
