Poverty reduction

Poverty has become Mongolia's one of the biggest issues. The country's economic growth has been significantly declining since 2013 putting the society in a danger of extreme poverty. In 2016 it has been reported that the proportion of people who exhibit consumption below the poverty line was quiet high and more than one fifith of Mongolians were living below poverty line especially in rural areas, where herders struggle to survive harsh weather conditions. Unemployment also remains important issue as there are fewer job opportunities for youth. This requires immediate attention. Therefore, UNDP is working to reduce extreme poverty and devise suitable solutions that foster balanced and inclusive development across the country and among all people. 

Our goals

UNDP will focus on national capacity development to formulate, implement and monitor policies and programmes aimed at putting SDG 1 (eradicate poverty in all its forms) on track. This is the overall goal of UNDP’s work in Mongolia. Support will be given on policy options for the off-track SDGs by identifying bottlenecks, prioritizing solutions, developing action plans and implementation strategies. UNDP will also focus the attention on long term development priorities including linking Mongolia up to the 2030 Agenda.
