image of Environmental Performance Review: Mongolia

The report takes stock of progress made by Mongolia in the management of its environment since 1987. It covers legal and policy frameworks, compliance assurance, greening the economy, environmental monitoring, public participation and education for sustainable development. It addresses issues specific to the country related to air protection, biodiversity conservation, as well as water, waste and land management. It also examines the efforts of Mongolia to integrate environmental considerations in its policies in the forestry and health sectors and highlights the progress achieved in the management of disaster risk associated with natural and man-made hazards. It provides substantive and policy analysis of the country’s participation in international cooperation on the environment.




The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) Environmental Performance Review (EPR) Programme provides assistance to its member States by regularly assessing their environmental performance. Countries then take steps to improve their environmental management, integrate environmental considerations into economic sectors, increase the availability of information to the public and promote information exchange with other countries on policies and experiences. Over two decades, these reviews have resulted in stronger institutions for environmental management, improved financial frameworks for environmental protection and greening the economy, advanced environmental monitoring and information systems, better integration of environmental concerns into sectoral policies, strengthened public participation and increased international cooperation across the ECE region.
