|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||Mongolia is a landlocked country covering an area of 1.56 million square kilometers. It has a population of only 3 million people, 77% of whom live in urban areas. The primary mode of transportation is through an expansive but poorly maintained road network. In 2016, reported road crashes were the fifth leading cause of deaths in Mongolia, following cardiovascular diseases and gastrointestinal cancers, and adults 1939 years old comprised more than 50% of road crash deaths and injuries._Up to 50 schoolchildren are killed annually going to and from school. More than 75% of recorded deaths are outside Ulaanbaatar where post-crash response is lacking, drunk driving is twice as common, and the likelihood of seat belt use is 50% lower than in Ulaanbaatar._The vehicle fleet in Mongolia more than doubled during 20112016, and the number of reported crashes also increased from 21,302 to 46,712. Road crash deaths and injuries are likely to increase markedly over the coming decades as vehicle ownership continues to grow in Mongolia, thereby affecting medium- and long-term growth prospects by removing adults from the workforce and reducing the productivity of injured workers.|
