Support in the development of a pasture land law and forest tenure assessment (Mongolia)


FAO with funding of a sister project conducted two multi-stakeholder workshops in Mongolia, in October 2014 and November 2015. The workshops re-launched dialogue on tenure in the country, raised awareness on the VGGT and served to develop an action plan and assess progress made in the implementation of the VGGT. As a result, a National Multi-stakeholder Platform (advisory role) and a Working Group (coordination and conduct of activities) were established in support of national VGGT implementation. The groups serve as a foundation for collectively addressing a broad range of activities to implement the VGGT and are coordinated by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture and the People Centered Conservation in Mongolia (PCC), a local NGO. The VGGT Working Group was formalized through an Order of the State Secretary of the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, which collectively reviewed the translation of the VGGT and officially presented it during the second workshop in November 2015. Resulting from the momentum created through these activities, and the priority areas for action identified during the first workshop, the Government of Mongolia requested FAO technical support in work related to the drafting of a pasture land law and a forest tenure assessment. Project funding offered the opportunity to respond to both requests.
