Use your car less, whenever possible, instead use sustainable transportation, such as bicycling, or use public transportation more often. In the case of long-distance travel, trains are more sustainable than airplanes, which cause a great deal of the CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. If you're into cars, remember that every kilometer that you increase your speed will considerably increase CO2 emissions and expenses. Each liter of fuel that your car uses, equals 2.5 kilos of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere.
We Can Make a Difference
ECCO-FARM project The “Enhancing Community Climate Options for Adaptation and Resilience in Mongolia” (ECCO-FARM) project will work with Mongolian communities to adopt Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) models that address agricultural growth, food security and climate change by simultaneously supporting sustainable production, climate change adaptation, and climate change mitigation. The project will contribute to building a just, climate resilient, and biodiverse food system and that tackles the complexity, interactions and trade-offs that shape the interface of agriculture, ecosystems and communities. The project will focus on the livestock sector because of its predominance in the agriculture sector, the contribution to GHG and its central importance to rural livelihoods. The livestock sector faces serious problems in pasture degradation and loss of productivity and biodiversity caused by overstocking and overgrazing. The project is initiated by the Alinea International Co. Ltd., Canadian consulting firm and will be implemented in close collaboration with BlackRock Partners LLC, Mongolian consulting firm on local consultation and our NGO on climate change mainstreaming.
Enhancing climate-resilient livestock farming project The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is the operational arm of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Technology Mechanism and co-hosted by the United Nations Environment (UN Environment) in collaboration with the United Nations (UN) Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). UN-CTCN technical assistance project was carried out between November 2021 and May 2023. Field work was conducted in Bayantumen soum in April, June, September and October of 2022. The project has conducted climate change vulnerability assessment on livestock farming in Bayantümen soum in a consultative way. Pastureland management measures were identified for climate-resilient livestock farming, business models were developed with community-scale meat-processing system for climate-resilient livestock farming and capacity of government bodies were enhanced through step-by-step consultation and capacity building activities, including local study tours and site visits. The CCSD was subcontracted by Alinea International, the main implementer of the project, along with the North-East Asia Environmental and Agricultural Research Center (NEARC), the project initiator. A final workshop was held in Ulaanbaatar in December of 2022.
