Improving Adaptive Capacity and Risk Management of Rural communities in Mongolia

Mongolie

Titre : Improving Adaptive Capacity and Risk Management of Rural communities in Mongolia

Pays : Mongolia

Durée : 12/11/2020 (approuvé) — 09/02/2028 (fin)

Descriptif
The impacts of a drastically warming planet are already being felt in Mongolia, where average temperatures have increased by 2.1 °C over the past 70 years. The country’s vast pastureland and livestock production are facing mounting challenges due to a declining rate of precipitation coupled with more frequent extreme weather events. Overgrazing is also causing watershed and grassland degradation. Unsustainable herding practices and livestock numbers are further stressing increasingly fragile ecosystems and related ecosystem services.

This GCF project will bring together successful approaches to rangeland management and support climate resilience of 930,000 people in Mongolia’s most vulnerable sector and communities. A holistic, end-to-end approach links climate forecasting to climate informed planning, to implementation of ecosystem-based adaptation for land and water, to value chain development and market access, and also to policy reform to support a sustainable livestock policy.
