  • Capacity Strengthening of Local Self-Governing Bodies

    The proposed outcome of the project is to strengthen capacities of local hurals to fulfil their representational and oversight mandates for improved accountability of local governments and local service delivery. The project aims to offer political support, financial incentives and technical assistance for the development of a National Training Programme for local elected representatives and establish appropriate institutional arrangements for delivering the programme.

  • Strengthening National Human Rights Oversight Capacity

    The objective is to strengthen the national human rights oversight mechanisms through supporting capacity of the NHRCM to study and report on emerging human rights issues in the current development context of Mongolia and issues affecting specific groups and seek response from duty-bearers and engage with relevant institutions for policy dialogue and public education.

  • Support to Participatory Legislative Process

    The project aims to assist the Parliament of Mongolia in improving legislating drafting processes.The current procedural weaknesses in policy development and legal drafting have a series of negative implications. The lack of consultations results in limited stakeholder buy-in and poor quality of policies and laws. These shortcomings in turn undermine potential implementation of new policies and legislation.
