RESILIENT COMMUNITIES PROGRAM

 

BACKGROUND

Mongolia is facing the cumulative effects of socio-political, economic, and ecological shocks and stresses that undermine its potential for inclusive and sustainable growth. At the same time, Mongolia’s extensive herding culture and history, the market opportunities offered by China and Russia, and an increased international demand for grass-fed beef provide significant opportunities for Mongolia to achieve more balanced, inclusive, and sustained growth through a stronger livestock sector.

Mercy Corps' Resilient Communities Program proposes to achieve growth and stability in income and social well-being for Mongolia’s urban and rural communities by stimulating production and export opportunities in its livestock economy, while enhancing the capacity of households and government to prevent and mitigate shocks and stresses to build long-term resilience.

The Resilient Communities Program will work in three aimags to develop economic hubs, with an additional five adjacent aimags serving as "feeder aimags". The pilot hub aimags, when developed, are expected to serve as learning and showcasing models for entrepreneurs, producers and traders in other aimags to replicate the promoted production and sales models.

 

PROGRAM GOAL

Competitive and resilient livestock industry sustains increases in income and social well-being for Mongolia's rural and peri-urban communities, with particular focus on male and female youth employment

 

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

  1. Alternative economic hubs support profitable, dynamic and adaptive livestock markets that engage youth
  2. Robust and modernized livestock production models are adapted to changing social, economic and ecological conditions
