Mongolia’s resource-intensive development and climate change vulnerability pose unique urgency for green growth. Since 2011, GGGI has assisted the Government of Mongolia to accelerate the development and implementation of its green growth policy and plans. In the areas of energy, water and green construction for public buildings, GGGI convenes stakeholders to support targeted research, capacity building, knowledge exchange, and project development.
In 2014, as part of the effort to diversify its economy and deliver growth in an environmentally sustainable manner, Mongolia adopted its National Green Development Policy (NGDP). GGGI contributed to the development of the NGDP through comprehensive studies in support of transport and energy sector green growth policies.
Currently, GGGI is supporting the development of implementation strategies that will help achieve the key energy and public building objectives outlined in the NGDP, including efforts to develop and implement green growth statistical analysis. GGGI has also engaged government partners to enhance Mongolia’s water data management capacity.
