Mongolia and UNDP to intensify cooperation
Mongolia proposed to improve the outcome of UN Development Programme project ‘Strengthening Representative Bodies in Mongolia.’
Mongolia proposed to improve the outcome of UN Development Programme project ‘Strengthening Representative Bodies in Mongolia’ (SRBM) by providing capacity building training to public servants working in local Citizens’ Representative Khurals. The SRBM was co-launched by the Government of Mongolia, the UNDP and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in 2017 to be implemented until 2020. The Citizens’ Representative Khurals are local representative bodies, operating in district and capital city and province and soum levels. There are over 8,000 members working in Citizens’ Representative Khurals across the country. An important priority of the project is capacity building of members of the Citizens’ Representative Khurals, in pursuit of which a workshop was organized among Chairmen of bag-level Citizens’ Khurals in Ulaanbaatar last year. The proposal was conveyed during a bilateral meeting between capital city authorities led by Chairman of the Citizens’ Representative Khural of the capital city (City Council) and Daniela Gasparikova, UNDP Deputy Resident Representative in Mongolia.
