STREAM - Sustainable Resilient Ecosystem and Agriculture Management in Mongolia, aims at increasing the capacity of Mongolian communities to implement innovative and sustainable long-term landscape management to address food system challenges and climate stresses.

 

The project is co-funded by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and will be implemented by GIZ and FAO in cooperation with the Mongolian Ministry of Environment and Tourism.

 

The European Union Ambassador to Mongolia Traian Hristea said: Today’s signature marks an important milestone for Team Europe in Mongolia together with our international partners. We are committed to support Mongolia in the implementation of its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) commitments under the umbrella of the European Union funded joint initiative of the Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) and Development-smart Innovation through Research in Agriculture (DeSIRA). Using the support of BMZ and the expertise from the EU Member States and FAO we will work with the Mongolian Government to foster innovation through climate-related practices in sustainable agriculture and landscape management of forest resources.
