Switzerland launches a new Cooperation Strategy for Mongolia 2018-2021

On 25 January 2018, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) presented its new Cooperation Strategy which will guide Switzerland’s engagement in Mongolia for the next four years.

For this, SDC earmarked a total of CHF 51.5 million, with an annual average expenditure of 12-13 million.

“Switzerland is committed to Mongolia’s development for the betterment of the livelihoods of Mongolians. The new strategy will allow us to build on the results achieved so far, replicate good practices but also respond better to the challenges that Mongolia and the city of Ulaanbaatar are facing. Together we can achieve a lot, and we count on the continuous cooperation with the Mongolian partners, their dynamism and commitment,” said Gabriella Spirli, SDC Director of Cooperation.

 The intensive collaboration with the private sector will remain a priority.

Building on the achievements of more than 15 years of cooperation, SDC will strengthen its current programmes in order to contribute to the empowerment of Mongolian citizens and institutions towards an equitable, green and prosperous society, leaving no one behind. The new strategy will in particular consolidate results and best practices in the three domains identified in the last cooperation strategy.

The new strategy will in particular consolidate results and best practices in the three domains identified in the last cooperation strategy.

The Agriculture and Food Security domain will aim to improve the livelihoods of rural and peri-urban small-scale farmers and vulnerable herders. In this sense, SDC will continue to address the challenges of rangeland degradation due to overstocking and climate change, support the diversification of production in the agriculture sector, and work towards better animal health and strengthened market links to increase the competitiveness of Mongolian products.

The Basic Education and Vocational Training domain will foster increased employment of women and men, by upgrading training programs and building the capacity of teachers and trainers in secondary and TVET schools and civil servants in employment services. The intensive collaboration with the private sector will remain a priority.

The Governance domain will foster accountable and effective national and sub-national government and an empowered civil society, by supporting the decentralization and democratization agenda of the Government of Mongolia. SDC will work towards the institutionalisation of capacity building efforts in partner institutions and continue policy-level support through technical assistance and the provision of Swiss expertise at national and local levels. Climate change and internal migration may become areas of future support in the Governance domain, particularly in peri-urban areas.
