Résumé partiel
Guided by the findings and recommendations of the UN-ADB MAPS (Mainstreaming, Acceleration and Policy Support) Mission in 2018, which called attention to the high risks herders and rural children faced in being left behind, the UN Joint Programme (UNJP) seeks to support national authorities and provincial governments, in closing the social protection gaps for this population, with a particular concern on its role in reducing their vulnerabilities to poverty and extreme climate change. The ILO, FAO, UNFPA and UNICEF in Mongolia, under the leadership of the UN Resident Coordinator of Mongolia, will work closely with the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry, National Emergency Management Agency, National Agency for Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring, Agency for Family, Child and Youth Development, General Authority for Social Insurance, and the National Committee on Gender Equality, employers’ and workers’ organizations and other stakeholders. The programme results will primarily contribute in achievement of SDG 1.3, 1.5 and 13.1 which will have further impacts on other SDG Targets such as 1.5, 4.4, 5.c, 8.3, 13.1, and 17.17. Founded in a rights-based approach, the UNJP combines the investment in system development, aiming to contribute to the implementation of a universal social protection system as a powerful tool to eradicate poverty ; with a practical intervention directly focused in herding men, women and their family members to protect them from falling in poverty and coming down into a poverty trap. With these objectives in mind, three main areas of intervention were agreed with the Government : (i) extension of coverage of herders by identifying innovative and unconventional solutions to enroll herders in social protection schemes ; (ii) introducing a shock responsive element into the social protection system to ensure herder families and children are increasingly protected from climate related shocks, and, (iii) designing and/or mobilizing the budget structure to ensure funding availability and financial sustainability to cater for the modalities proposed.
