The local trainers and Mercy Corps aimag staff have jointly conducted "Estimate Risks, Plan Early and Overcome Disaster with no Loss" trainings in 67 target soums between September and November. Total of 1940 people participated in the trainings including 1220 (63%) from state organizations, 47 (2.4%) from NGOs and 673 (34.6%) herders.
The training participants made changes to 35 soum disaster plans. They identified the most frequent disasters that occur in their locations and adapted soum disaster plans accordingly. For instance the Hangai region is frequently hit by dzuds; the Eastern aimags are most affected by wildfires; the Western region is prone to outbreaks of infectious animal diseases and floods; and Gobi-Altai and Zavhan aimags have a lot of snow and sand storms.
