What We Do?

The mission of the MWF NGO is to ensure a high-level community engagement and ownership over the environment and water-related actions. Functioning as an environmental think-tank, the MWF gathers know-how on environment-water-related issues and community participation in solving the problems. Supports national and local activities and events on water-environment-climate change issues, including community capacity development and awareness-raising through workshops and trainings.

Since our establishment, the MWF has been active in environment-water issues in 10 river basins, including the Lake Khuvsgul -Eg River, Ider, Delgermuren, Eree, Kharkhiraa, Turgen, Kherleh, Tuul, Lake Boontsagaan-Baidrag, Lake Khar -Khovd, Galba Uush-Dolood Gobi Bains completing 15 projects, at national level as well as river basin level. These projects have focused on country water security assessments, socio-economic analysis at river basin level, water resources baseline study, integrated environment, natural resource and water resources management, environment-water quality assessment, and training for government and local communities. These projects cover technical assistance, research, and capacity building. The MWF has contributed to sustainable environmental and water management by building partnerships with government organizations, research institutions, and a wide range of the community organizations.

The MWF brings a highly valuable domestic view through our extensive and proven local experience in the environment-water sector by means of a well-established network of local specialists and partner organizations, familiarity with the customs, practices, and challenges facing environment-water resources management in Mongolia.
