Description The ensuing project will be aligned with the following impact: competitiveness and sustainability of Mongolia's agriculture sector improved. The outcome of the ensuing project will be value addition on Mongolian agricultural resources increased by project participating enterprises (PPEs). The project is expected to enhance technology adoption of agro-enterprise, to increase primarily the agro-processing capacity and secondly agricultural production in Mongolia, and hence increase value addition to agricultural resources. The increased capacity will lead to employment generation, and indirectly benefit herders, farmers, and primary processors through the PPEs' increased demand for raw materials. An indicative financing amount of $19.9 million from regular ordinary capital resources and $37.2 million of concessional ordinary capital resources has been proposed for the ensuing project. The Government of Mongolia, during the country programming mission held in Ulaanbaatar in June 2021, requested the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to provide lending support to prepare the Agriculture and Rural Development Project Phase 2. The ensuing loan is included in ADB's lending pipeline discussed with the Government of Mongolia during the country programming mission held from December 2020 to March 2021.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The executing agency, the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry (MOFALI), has limited experience with ADB requirements for loan preparation. The transaction technical assistance (TA) will help the government prepare a project design that complies with the ADB requirements and international best practices. The TA will undertake the relevant work, tasks, and due diligence for assessing both the technical, economic, and financial feasibility of the project, as well as the environmental and social impacts of the project.
