Young WOLTS champions offer hope for Mongolia’s herding future
27 July 2020
Mokoro are delighted to publish a fourth blog in the ‘WOLTS Team Perspectives’ series, titled ‘Young champions – hope for Mongolia’s herding traditions’. The new blog is written by our WOLTS Mongolia field team member, Suvd Boldbaatar, and it is co-published with the Land Portal. Suvd works with the Mongolian NGO, People Centered Conservation, which has partnered with Mokoro on the WOLTS project since 2016. Our blog series showcases the views of different members of the global WOLTS team about the impacts of the project’s action-research on gender, land and mining among pastoralist communities in Tanzania and Mongolia. WOLTS Team Perspectives No.4 tells the story of a young herder who has not followed his peers to Mongolia’s cities in search of higher education and employment opportunities. Instead, he has become a WOLTS community champion on gender and land, and is the kind of dynamic young leader who can help to ensure a sustainable future for Mongolia’s traditional way of life.
