General

Climate change and increased livestock numbers contribute to vast land degradation in Mon-golia. Still in transition towards a free market economy, herders from Khentii province have difficulties in adjusting their traditional pastoral system to the current changes and challenges in both income generating activities and climate change adaptation. Rural women have less opportunities to actively participate in community decision making processes. This project aims to empower rural women to adapt to climate change through better livestock breeding techniques and financial independence. Further, the project informs policy makers and raises their awareness for the connection of gender and climate change related risks.
