On September 4, Minister of Environment and Tourism received Director of the Institute of Geography and Geo ecology at the Mongolian Academy of Sciences and scholar of the institute. During the meeting, the sides discussed the current state of desertification and soil degradation in Mongolia, and tests being carried out to introduce new technology to prevent further worsening of the issue. Minister highlighted that less than 5 percent of local budgets are currently being allocated for fighting against desertification, and requested scholars and researchers to submit their suggestion regarding the necessary financing for the coming year’s budget. Director introduced the progress of works as well as results of research carried out at the Field Research Centers established in the provinces of Bulgan, Darkhan-Uul, and Tuv, and informed the Minister about various projects carried out in cooperation with Chinese researchers on desertification. Despite the successful findings, the measures have yet to be properly implemented as there are not enough funds being allocated for science and research.
