The Country Planning Framework (CPF) of the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) lays out the green growth objectives that GGGI’s interventions aim to support Mongolia in achieving. The CPF is formulated with the development challenges of Mongolia in mind, and supports the national goals of economic growth, poverty reduction, social inclusion and environmental sustainability. The CPF is aligned with the organizational priorities of GGGI as articulated in the GGGI Strategic Plan 2015-2020. The CPF is also aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Mongolia’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The CPF is thus a contextualized planning document for in-country programming.
The achievement of the CPF outcomes will require the support of the national government, private sector and other partners, and is contingent on the CPF’s adherence to the following key principles:
- Ownership – It is co-owned by the government and endorsed by the lead ministry that GGGI has an agreement with, in Mongolia this is the Ministry of Environment, Green Development and Tourism (MEGDT);
- Mutual accountability – It demonstrates commitment by GGGI and the government to collaborate and provide support in implementing the CPF;
- Alignment – It is aligned to national objectives and informed by the GGGI Strategic Plan 2015-2020;
- Leadership – Its formulation is jointly led by the GGGI country team and the Government of Mongolia (GoM).
