Under the shared goal to tackle the climate crisis, Korea and Mongolia have been pioneering a greenbelt project

Under the shared goal to tackle the climate crisis, Korea and Mongolia have been pioneering a greenbelt project, a testament to their relationship and a joint effort to rejuvenate decertifying landscapes. The beginning of the Korea-Mongolia Greenbelt Plantation Project dates back to 2006 when the Korea Forest Service, the nation's forest agency, and Mongolia's Ministry of Environment and Tourism formalized their forestry cooperation to combat yellow dust and desertification prevention in Mongolia with a memorandum of understanding. Phase three, running from 2022 to 2026, is an extensive forestry cooperation project. This phase focuses on restoring areas of northern Mongolia damaged by wildfires, establishing an effective wildfire response system and creating infrastructure to combat desertification. The creation of public-private partnership forests to support corporate environment, social and governance activities and support in the Billion Tree Movement will also be made in order to enhance Mongolia's forestry sector capabilities. This year marks the 18th anniversary of the Korea-Mongolia Greenbelt Plantation Project, which began in 2007. In May, the Korea-Mongolia Greenbelt Plantation Project team received top marks for project operation and management among 19 organizations at a performance review and presentation organized by the Mongolian Ministry of Environment and Tourism. "Phase three will focus on strengthening capabilities in wildfire response, nursery and education programs, forest creation and agroforestry. We will continue efforts to improve sustainability and share Korea's advanced forestry technologies in diverse areas".
