    Under the project, the existing legal policy concerning vegetable value chains in Mongolia was reviewed and draft policies were formulated based on the advice of legal and agricultural experts. Workshops on international best practices were delivered to Government personnel, researchers, seed breeders and farmers in order to develop a stronger understanding of legal policy and regulations on a national scale. As civil servants are the primary Government personnel who deal with policy at the field level, training was also delivered to enhance their capacity in the management and implementation of integrated pest management (IPM), good agricultural practices (GAP) and organic agriculture. Training facilitators, legal experts and representatives from relevant Government departments and national inspection agencies were all involved in this process. Subsequently, the implementation of regulations for IPM, GAP, pesticide management and organic agriculture were piloted in target areas. Civil servants worked directly with participating farmers by explaining national policy and regulations, the necessary actions for compliance with Mongolia’s food safety laws and their essential roles in the advancement of the country. Published technical guidelines and resources on these laws and regulations were also provided.

    As a signatory to the Paris Agreement, Mongolia has committed to certain protocols for monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) regarding progress toward its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) targets. However, gaps remain in the MRV systems for the agriculture, forestry and other land uses (AFOLU) sector. In order to fulfil Mongolia’s Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) commitments and improve the quality of climate related decision making at all levels, these gaps should be addressed, including inadequate institutional arrangements and technological and technical capacities for mitigation related MRV and adaptation related monitoring and reporting. As such, this project sought to conduction activities that enhance the overall quality of information related to those issues by aligning MRV practices with global standards. It was designed to ensure that all stakeholders access and benefit from the resulting MRV improvements, and focused on addressing coordination and measurement gaps that are prerequisites for reporting.
