Description

The Asian Development Bank approved the provision of assistance on a grant basis from the Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction (JFPR) to the Government of Mongolia in an amount not exceeding the equivalent of $3.0 million for G9192-MON: Community Vegetable Farming for Livelihood Improvement Project on 4 December 2017. The original project became effective on 28 March 2018 and the current project closing date is 30 June 2022.

The overall project will take an inclusive value chain approach to the vegetable farming sub-sector and implement a community farming model. The project is a pilot initiative aiming to improve the livelihood of smallholders involved in vegetable production in four Mongolian aimags. The project will introduce a community farming model, applying improved climate-resilient farming practices and high-level greenhouse technology, strengthening farm-to-market linkages, and integrating farming groups into inclusive agriculture value chains. The additional financing will add value by promoting the integration of greenhouse agriculture high-level technology and innovative solutions into the current project

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed additional financing is requested for the design, testing, and rolling out of winter greenhouses. The additional funds are envisioned to be utilized for (a) consulting advisory for (i) a rapid assessment and technical viability study of the different types of winter greenhouse models suitable for the weather in Mongolia, (ii) design and implementation of a number of different models of winter greenhouses, and (iii) a brief feasibility study for future scale-up and investment and project development; (b) provision of required equipment and systems needed for piloting the winter greenhouses including HLT systems for irrigation, heating, ventilation, and waste management; and (c) conduct of required consultation workshops and training for technology and approaches being introduced and piloted within the project. Use of HLT funds for the subject grant presents a strong demonstration opportunity for replication in the country and region, in places with similar climate and has opportunities for scale-up.
