The objective of the NAMA is to combat desertification and reduce GHG emissions in one of the most emitting sector in Mongolia

Mongolia’s GHG emissions are produced primarily by the energy and agriculture sectors.

The NAMA can be implemented in three phases:

  • Phase 1: Piloting of GHG MRV methods, results-based monitoring and evaluation system for the National Livestock Program, prioritization of barriers to adoption and identifying best practices for overcoming barriers, stakeholder consultations in the livestock and/or grassland sector, definition of roles, responsibilities, and coordination mechanisms, and submission to the UNFCCC.
  • Phase 2: Complete assessment of the National Livestock Program activity lines, consultation on identification and prioritization of policies and measures on a national and local level, pilot implementation of selected activities of the National Livestock Program, pilot implementation of grassland carbon sequestration projects for carbon markets.
  • Phase 3: Assessment of the supporting legal and policy framework, clarification of national-level coordination,

approval procedures, and arrangements for MRV procedures, and establishment of a climate finance mechanism.
