Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Learning from international urban upgrading and redevelopment projects, the Municipality of Ulaanbaatar (MUB) is seeking to pilot appropriate ICT innovations in promoting redevelopment of Ulaanbaatars ger areas at a small scale, before replicating success to all ger areas. Tranche 1 of the Ulaanbaatar Urban Services and Ger Areas Development Investment Program provides an ideal environment to pilot ICT applications for urban redevelopment in ger areas, thanks to the extensive preparation work carried out in urban planning, community engagement, as well as economic and infrastructure development. These existing works have laid down a foundation of reliable data, rich content and strong capacity to facilitate ICT applications. But ICT applications will also contribute to enhance the development objectives of Tranche 1. The customized ICT tools piloted under this TA will introduce innovative ways to carry out existing tasks and hopefully enhance efficiency and effectiveness of the Tranche 1 interventions.

This TA is aligned with the Mongolian Government's Adjustments to the Ulaanbaatar City Urban Development Master Plan 2020 and Development Directions 2030 (approved in February 2013).
