Description: This project supports Mongolia and Central Asian countries in developing research capacity on inclusive green economy (IGE) development in Central Asia. The participating countries share socio-economic challenges and environmental issues such as land degradation, water scarcity, energy inefficiency, and waste production, and by facilitating South-South Cooperation, this project promotes the sharing of good practices and methodologies to help countries embark on Green Economy trajectories.. South-South Cooperation is a broad framework for collaboration and exchange among countries of the South in the political, economic, social, cultural, environmental and technical domains. Part of the value of South-South Cooperation lays in its primary purpose to empower countries to shape home-grown responses rather than relying on external interventions to development problems.
