Mongolian farmers and pastoralists find themselves struggling to adapt to a drier climate, and the majority of Mongolia’s 40% rural herding population finds themselves at increasing risk. In 2012, this project funded by the Adaptation Fund and implemented by the UNDP began to deliver sustainable ecosystem-based approaches linking herders’ survival with environmental health.
The Adaptation Fund finances concrete climate adaptation and resilience projects in developing countries. Since 2010, The Fund has committed $338.5 million to support 61 countries, including 22 Least Developed Countries and 13 Small Island Developing States.
