UB and JICA launch second phase of air pollution control project

By M.ZOLJARGAL

The Ulaanbaatar City Governor’s Office, Ministry of Nature, Environment and Green Development, Ministry of Economic Development, and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) worked together on a Technical Cooperation Project between 2010 and March 2013 to enhance air pollution control monitoring in Ulaanbaatar. On September 24, the partnered agencies signed a discussion note to launch the second stage of the project, which will continue for three years starting in December 2013.

In the first stage, a database was formulated on air polluting factors and handed over to related organizations. The second stage will focus on reducing air pollution based on the collected data. Measures, policies, strategies and the implementation of monitoring structures will be put into place to reduce air pollution.
