Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. In Mongolia, USAID Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance is working with partner districts in Uvs, Khovd, Sukhbaatar, and Khentii to reduce the vulnerability of herder households through strengthening disaster preparedness and improved rangeland management.

In partnership with Mercy Corps Mongolia, USAID distributed needed tools and equipment, as well as learning materials to enhance rangeland management and pasture rotation. With the support, districts will be able to determine the carrying capacity of pastures, create pasture management maps, monitor movements, and optimize the carrying capacity of pastures in a timely and sustainable manner. District governments will be responsible for developing a system for registration which will be used by district-level representatives of three different departments- agriculture, meteorology, and environment- as well as the district governments themselves.
