Descriptif :


Since 2010, GERES has supported vegetables sector in Mongolia, relying on affordable and locally adapted production and preservation technologies. Beyond the earlier GERES implements nowadays also a comprehensive program based on organic and farm-to-fork approaches which scope the whole vegetables value chain and it’s enabling environment in Arkhangai and in Khentii. GERES is leading the global CEMAATERR[1] Program (4 countries in total), the Mongolian component started in Arkhangai province on spring 2017, aims at raising awareness and providing support to local actors taking into account climate changes and their effects when establishing their local development plans.


In terms of energy efficiency (EE) in housing to address climate and pollution challenges faced by Ulaanbaatar peripheral districts population, GERES is starting the implementation of EU Switch Asia II-funded project, the “Promoting Sustainable Consumption and Production Strengthening” project, in partnership with four implementing parties. This project has started in January 2018, for 4 years and with a total budget around 2.3 million euros.

By limiting fossil fuel consumption through improving the energy efficiency of low-cost individual houses in the Ger areas of UB, the project will complement existing projects aimed at reducing air pollution in the city, thus contributing to the reduction of respiratory infections, limiting the burden posed to Household by excessive fuel consumption and mitigating climate change. A market-based approach will strengthen local private sector. Based on a conservative improved EE of 20%, it is estimated that over the course of the action, 1.000 EE houses will be built or retrofitted, saving 1.600 mT of coal and avoiding the emission of 6.000 TeqCO², generating 5 M € turnover for MSMEs. After 10 years, the project at scale could see 50.000 EE houses built of retrofitted, 140.000mT of coal saved and 500.000 TeqCO² emission reductions
