Since 2015, LTS-2 has connected herders in 171 districts in 16 provinces with information on disaster mitigation and prevention through a combination of training workshops, service provision and a first of its kind messaging platform—called the Advanced Weather Information System, or AWI—that leverages mobile technology to disseminate life-saving weather forecasts to thousands of households across the country. Over 54,000 information requests have been made to date.

The meeting was an opportunity for donors, implementing partners -and beneficiaries alike to learn more about the size and scope of the impact LTS-2 has had on rural communities in Mongolia. On the agenda were product demonstrations, case studies and remarks presentations by leaders in economic development including Director Ramesh Singh, Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia U. Enkhtuvshin, US Embassy Chargé d'Affaires Manuel Micaller and USAID/OFDA Regional Advisor Ben Hemingway.
