Mongolia is in search for best solution to air pollution reduction. Mongolian Arig Bank announced the "Let's Fight Air Pollution together!" challenge to reduce carbon dioxide emissions coming from Ger peri-urban districts of Ulaanbaatar city. The best solutions will be rewarded with MNT100 million. The practice of raw coal stove burning applied by the peri-urban residents in winter time become the main culprit of the city’s severe air pollution constituting about 80 percent of air pollution problem. Therefore, the Arig Bank is implementing the project, as part of its efforts for making real contributions in building a sustainable future for Mongolia. The project will run for 4 years in three phases, including Best Solutions selection process; Piloting and Development; and Application in practice and Monitoring. Ministry of Environment and Tourism, Health and Energy Ministries, Energy Regulation Commission, Governor’s Office of the Capital, Global Green Growth Institute and UNDP will collaborate in the project.
