Pays : Mongolie
Localisation : Ovorhangay Aimag, Mongolia

Description
The Water Point and Extension Station Establishment for Poor Herding Families Project (the Project) will (i) create new, sustainable water points and accompanying water management infrastructure in pasture locations ; (ii) increase the availability of underused pastureland in Ovorhangay Aimag (province) ; (iii) support the development of strong institutions for local governance of water points and adjacent pastures ; and (iv) create one-stop agricultural and social service centers to develop service delivery capacity at the soum (district) level. Improvements in institutions’ management of water points and adjacent pasture resources will support resource management by herders and local governments and ensure pastures will not be degraded in the coming years. The Project will also improve the environmental sustainability of herding activities by lessening pressure from overgrazing at existing water points. It will aid poor nomadic herders to plan, manage, and monitor water points and pastures with the support of responsive soum agricultural extension centers (SAECs), and local communities will decide the precise types of agricultural and social service extension activities they will receive. Additionally, the Project will improve the livelihoods and livelihood security of poor nomadic herding families by improving their access to and management of water and pasture resources, as well as their capacity to add value to their agricultural products while also addressing social and health concerns.
