Title
Strengthening capacity in the agriculture and land-use sectors in Mongolia for enhanced transparency in implementation and monitoring of Mongolia’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement
Objective

By 2020, Mongolia is preparing reports to the UNFCCC under the Paris Agreement Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) with strengthened agriculture, forestry and other land use sector components including inventories of emissions sources and sinks and information necessary to track progress against priority actions identified in Mongolia’s NDC for these sectors.
