Mongolia after the years of economic recession started to regain its strength, however, we need to admit that this recovery is now tenuous due to COVID-19 prevention measures which are impacting the economy and society and may bring long-term adverse consequences such as economic stagnation, increased poverty, further inequalities, disparities between urban and rural areas, and health and environmental concerns, which undermine the overall sustainable development progress and challenge achievements to date across many Sustainable Development Goals in Mongolia.
UNDP Mongolia conducted a rapid socio-economic assessment on the impact of COVID-19 prevention measures on vulnerable groups and value chains, in Mongolia, between March 30th and April 10th, 2020.
Using a systems thinking approach was not new to the country or the UNDP Country Office. At the national level for example, efforts were being made to address complex challenges such as traffic congestion and air pollution in the city. At the provincial levels, efforts were being made to explore SMART city approaches using system thinking. The Country Office has also just rolled out the Sustainable Cashmere Platform- an exciting initiative to position Mongolia as a global leader in sustainable cashmere by bringing herder groups, government and the private sector together to work for solutions.
