“A total of 33 security administrations are in charge of 27.2 million hectares, or 17.4 percent of the territory of Mongolia. Within the policy to increase state protected areas to 30 percent of all territory, the ministry is working to include eight new sites on the list of state protection,” N.Battsereg said, and added that the ministry has submitted a draft resolution to put 11,000 hectares land around Noyon Mountain, which would range from Bornuur soum of Tuv Province to Selenge Province’s Mandal soum, under state protection.
Minister N.Battsereg also noted that 35,310,000 MNT was generated for the state budget in 2014 in payment for natural resources consumption, including water, springs, wild game animals, and natural plant resources. Spending of 20,122,700 MNT for nature protection and rehabilitation was planned in the 2014 budget, however according to actual performance, only 10,006,200 MNT was spent. He told reporters at the meeting that half of the payment received for natural resources consumption is not being spent as planned.
