Context

The Government of Mongolia (GoM) has identified improving the resilience of communities to the impacts of climate change and transitioning to a greener development pathway as priorities in its National Green Development Policy (NGDP). Mongolia’s energy sector is highly dependent on fossil fuels with over 90% of heating and electricity derived from coal. The resulting soil and air pollution is particularly acute in the peri-urban areas of Ulaanbaatar and other secondary cities, where poverty exceeds the national rate of 27%.

Mongolia has therefore made commitments to increase renewable energy generation and improve urban planning and resilience in its NGDP and Action Plan, NDC and Vision 2050. While the supporting policy environment has improved, implementation and financing to address these challenges remain well below the levels needed to transition to inclusive green growth. Additionally, green growth is not yet fully integrated into energy and urban development policy implementation and financing at the line ministry or provincial and municipal levels. Given the current impacts of the COVID 19 global pandemic, weak commodity prices and low investment, a stretched government budget reduces the ability to introduce many of the intended green development measures.
