With average air pollution (2.5PM) at 7.5 times higher than the World Health Organization’s safe limit, Mongolia's capital city of Ulaanbaatar faces significant air quality challenges. During the punishingly cold winters, many yurt dwellers heat their homes with coal-powered stoves, a major source of pollution. The National Government of Mongolia's 2017 action plan identifies 59 measures for cleaning up the urban environment and clearing the air.

We commit to take actions on improving air quality in Ulaanbaatar city and other urban areas, improving municipal solid waste management, stimulating clean energy and ensuring sustainable financing to improve the household heating system.
