Mongolia and ADB
In the Spotlight
In 2015, Central Asian countries made strides improving the environment for cross-border e-commerce in the region.
With more than 140 countries currently offering or in transition to a kindergarten through grade 12 (K–12) school education system, this desk study explored the experiences of four countries—Mongolia, Philippines, Poland, and Turkey—and one Canadian province, Ontario, in preparing and implementing K-12 systems.
ADB has approved a grant of $3 million for a pilot project to make the dilapidated school dormitories of Mongolia’s poor and sparsely populated western region fit for students.
In Mongolia’s traditional tent communities, more than 290,000 people are healthier and more comfortable due to clean water and modern sewer systems.
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.
