Mongolia and ADB

In the Spotlight

Mongolia’s economic growth has eased from historic highs, driven largely by mining, to more sustainable levels. The economy requires diversification, with corresponding broadening of job opportunities and social protection, to generate inclusive growth. Protection of the environment - including grasslands, forests, rivers, and lakes - is also essential to ensure healthy and productive livelihoods.

ADB assistance in Mongolia works to raise the country’s standard of living by combining effective financing models with best practice knowledge products and services.
