Women’s land tenure security project (WOLTS) Mongolia

2017
Mokoro, Mongolia

For the last two years Mokoro has been partnering on the WOLTS Mongolia project with People Centered Conservation (PCC). PCC is a Mongolian NGO established in 2006, which aims to promote the protection of natural resources through support to the activities of local residents and civil society, with a strong commitment to addressing issues for gender equality and vulnerable groups.

The WOLTS Mongolia team has been working in two communities affected by mining investments, Bornuur soum in Tuv aimag and Dalanjargalan soum in Dornogovi aimag. Through multiple site visits and using different research methods and techniques to triangulate and validate data, the team has been investigating the intersection of gender and land relations in different pastoralist contexts and developing a methodology for continuing community engagement and capacity building to protect and support the land rights of all vulnerable people.

The team presented some of the findings from the research so far at a Multi-Stakeholder Workshop on Gender, Land and Mining in Mongolia, held in Ulaanbaatar in October 2017. Participants included community representatives, national and local government officials, civil society organisations, development partners and representatives of the private sector.
