Final report: Estimating the below ground biomass and root shoot ratio of larch forest in northern Mongolia
According to statistics Mongolia supports two major forest biomes, boreal forests in the north accounting for 14.2 million hectares (87%), dominated by larch and birch, and 2.0 million of sexual forests (13%) (FRDC, 2016), which typically grow on mountain slopes between 8002500 m above sea level. In terms of growing stock, larch contributes around 80 percent, while all other trees are below 10 percent...Read more
Research report: Allometric Model-Development for Above Ground Biomass of Saxaul Haloxylon ammodendron
The saxaul forests of Mongolia formed by Haloxylon ammodendron (C.A. Mey) Bunge. Saxaul forests usually grow in the arid and semi-arid regions of Asia and the deserts of Mongolia, where they are the dominant endemic brush type plant. In Mongolia, the saxaul forest grows in an area within the Gobi approximately 1650 km wide and 360 km in diameter from north to south.... Read more

Rapid Assessment of Forest Protection Activities in Mongolia
At the invitation of UN-REDD, Karen Ripley, Forest Entomologist with the USDA Forest Service came to Mongolia in June, 2017 to review and assess opportunities for improved forest protection strategies with respect to monitoring and controlling forest insect pests.
Background report: Policies, Laws, and Regulations Relevant to the Cancun Safeguards in Мongolia
This report presents the outcomes of detailed work to assess Mongolian policies, laws, and regulations (PLRs) that may be relevant for both promoting the environmental and social benefits of proposed REDD+ implementation actions, and dealing with possible risks. The assessment of these PLRs thus forms an important element in the development of Mongolia’s national approach to the REDD+ safeguards.
Analysis of Social Inclusion and Gender Dynamic for REDD+ in Mongolia
Noting the importance of gender considerations in REDD+ policy design and programme implementation and numerous research and study acknowledged that REDD+ initiatives should recognize gender differentiated roles in forest management to ensure effective and inclusive policies and regulations are being implemented.
