Titre : SRBM - Strengthening Representative Bodies in Mongolia

Pays/Région : Mongolie

Durée : 01.08.2021 // 31.12.2023

On request of the authorities, the project ensures the implementation and oversight over new local governance laws to ensure public service delivery and sustainable rangeland management. Based on SDC supported achievements on democratic governance in Mongolia, increased technical cooperation between the Swiss and the Mongolian Parliamentary Services is at the core of the project. Gender equality and pro-poor approaches are mainstreamed.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : End of 2019, Mongolia made amendments to its Constitution. The roles of the Parliaments at all levels increased, secured by the revision of related laws. The national Parliament committed to mainstream gender in all its decisions and processes. The adoption of new laws marks a progress toward decentralization, with the ability for the first time to raise taxes at local level. The delegated functions are formalized, local revenue and expenditure increased. Among the new ability to raise taxes at local level, the Animal Tax Law was adopted in 12.2020. This law is key, both under a decentralisation and a climate change perspectives : overgrazing, absence of a regulatory framework, underrepresentation of herders at decision making levels, are aggravating rangeland degradation while rangelands represent the natural resource base for the 2nd pillar of the economy. As the decision-makers at local level, municipal councils with herders’ participation play an important role to set tax rates for animals, formulate and monitor rangeland policies. It is strategic that bodies at local and national levels have capacities to ensure implementation and oversight of these key steps of decentralization.
