Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The conduct of a CWSA for Mongolia is consistent with ADB's Water Operational Plan (2011) and Knowledge Management Directions and Action Plan (2013). It is also in line with ADB's Mongolia Country Partnership Strategy which supports the government's goal of building a harmonious society by promoting environmentally sustainable development, and in particular to help Mongolia adapt to the impacts of climate change by supporting the efficient use and sustainable management of natural resources. Furthermore, the outputs from the CWSA exercise will help contribute to Mongolia's National Development Strategy of 2007, which contains specific environment-related directions for the period of 2007 2021, as well as the 2012 Government Action Program, which includes a number of key priorities related to the natural resources sector.
