Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. The European Union funded project ‘Enhancing the Civil society organizations’ contribution to sustainable local economic development and growth of Zavkhan province’ has been successfully implemented by the World Vision Mongolia since 2018 in partnership with the Zavkhan Governor’s Office and the aimag’s CSOs. The main goal of the project is to support inclusive, equitable and sustainable economic development by increasing cooperation between Local Authority and provincial CSOs.

Back in 2018, in order to build the capacity of CSOs and to increase the participation and representation of citizens in the local development process, initially 25 CSO’s partnering with the project have joined forces and established the ‘Together for Development’ network, which is chaired by its Coordinating Body.

D. Tuvshinjargal, Governor of Zavkhan province, and R. Altan-Ulzii, Head of the Coordinating Body of CSO Network, signed a long-term partnership agreement that will ensure the sustainable cooperation between CSOs and the local authorities in the further years, even after the project is ended. The event was also attended by the Vice Governor, Head of Departments, project staff and the members from 25 CSOs. During the event, CSOs and the local authority shared their strategy and plans and discussed on possible collaborative areas.
