Mongolia is known for its steppes and deserts, but it is a forest nation, too. Boreal forests line Mongolia’s northern border with Siberia, covering 14.2 million hectares, or nine percent of this vast country. They are part of a huge expanse of boreal forest – the world’s largest terrestrial biome – that stretches right across the earth’s northern latitudes. These forests are both intensely affected by climate change but they are also a possible, partial solution to it.
To share experiences and the achievements of REDD+ in Mongolia so far, we and and the UN-REDD Mongolia National Programme have prepared a special multimedia story, which can be viewed on this website.
Additionally, the UN-REDD Programme have also produced a feature story on how Mongolia’s boreal forests can better the livelihoods of its rural people.
