Sovereign Project | 45007-013

The TA will focus on participatory research, capacity building, and developing action plans for engaging local youth for youth development and urban community development in Ulaanbaatar's ger areas in a sustainable and purposeful way. It will primarily expand existing outputs and activities being conducted under the ongoing multitranche financing facility (MFF) 0078-MON: Ulaanbaatar Urban Services and Ger Areas Development Investment Program (MFF Program) Tranche 2, approved in March 2017. It will also support capacity building activities for the ongoing Ulaanbaatar Green Affordable Housing and Resilient Urban Renewal Sector Project (Green Affordable Housing Project), approved in August 2018. The TA will build on synergies among youth development activities, improved youth participation in urban community development, and the outputs and activities of the two ongoing ADB loan projects.
