Direction du Développement de la Coopération (Suisse)

Titre : Mainstreaming Social Accountability in Mongolia (MASAM) Mongolia

Pays/Région : Mongolie

Durée : 01.08.2020 - 31.07.2023

The 2nd and last phase aims to strengthen civil society and public sector agencies’ capacities in linking (a) policy planning and implementation, including in the health sector, and (b) budget planning and execution (public investments). Social Accountability mechanisms will enable the Government of Mongolia to improve the delivery of key services and impacts of public investment projects on people’s livelihood. The WB and SDC are leading partners in mainstreaming Social Accountability in Mongolia.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : Public participation progressed thanks to the government’s efforts to institutionalize existing mechanisms for transparency and effective involvement of citizens in policy decision making. The Mongolian civil society is becoming a more active player at various stages of the policy-making cycle. From being the fastest-growing economy in the world in 2011 (GDP growth at 17.3%), Mongolia faced one of the most severe economic crisis in 2016 with growth rate slid to 1%, triggered in part by declining of copper and coal prices and lack of fiscal discipline and off‐budget spending. However, thanks to the economic recovery programme and better fiscal discipline, the economy recovered strongly in 2018, when GDP growth reached 7.2%. However, Mongolia continues to experience inadequate and inequitable access to quality health services, especially among disadvantaged groups, and high out-of-pocket expenses. COVID-related negative impacts on the entire economy, e.g. on budget revenues and livelihoods are yet to be revealed, but are already severe. Poverty rate was at 28.4% in 2018, with another 14.9% living “near” poverty, making them highly vulnerable to negative shocks. The anti-COVID government measures since January 2020 seem to have brought them back under the poverty line, hence close to 50% of total population being poor.
* Objectifs  : Social Accountability is mainstreamed across all 21 Mongolia’s provinces and the city of Ulaanbaatar, contributing to better service delivery and investments through effective use of public funds in key sectors (e.g. health).
