    Project goal

    “Conservation of ecosystem integrity and resilience, biodiversity and livelihoods in Western Mongolia’s productive landscapes”

    Objective

    “To reduce negative impacts of mining on rangelands in the western mountain and steppe region by incorporating mitigation hierarchy and offset for land degradation into the landscape level planning and management”

    Project outcomes

    Land degradation mitigation and offset framework operationalised, through eco-regional land use planning and capacity development

    Land degradation mitigation and offsets applied through SLM within selected landscapes

    Outcome 1: Land degradation mitigation and offset framework operationalised,
     through eco-regional land use planning and capacity development

    • Land degradation mitigation and offset procedures and guidelines developed, integrated in the mining concession planning and licensing system and operationalized
    • Participatory and science-based eco-regional assessment conducted in western Mongolia and applied to provincial (landscape-level) land use planning
    •  Capacity of key stakeholders developed to apply mitigation and offsetting at the national, aimag and soum levels, and public awareness raised

    Outcome 2:Land degradation mitigation and offsets applied through SLM
    within selected landscapes

    • Integrated land management plans operationalised in selected landscapes with full participation of key stakeholders  
    • Land degradation mitigation and offsets piloted in selected landscapes
    • Capacity of local stakeholders developed through demonstration and application of innovative SLM approaches
