French Project Worth EUR 100 Thousand for Strengthening Food Security and Women ParticipationSociety
Ulaanbaatar, September 26, 2023 /MONTSAME/. The Government of the Republic of France, through its
Embassy in Mongolia is to launch a project to be implemented by GERES NGO on
September 27, 2023.
As crop production is insufficient in Mongolia, the Project worth of EUR 100 thousand aims to develop agricultural bioclimatic solutions by establishing solar greenhouses and underground eco-cellars, adapted to small Mongolian farms, and to strengthen the entrepreneurship in rural area, in particular capacity-building of women, who dominate in the crop production.
This project is part of the fight against climate change and the search for food security in the face of a strong dependence on imported food products. The project will focus on the reduction of the vegetable import of Mongolia and the contribution to a more diversified and nutritious diet. It will also support operations of small crop farms and cooperatives.
