Summary of publication
The Integrated analysis of economic, political and social issues that support or hinder growth and poverty reduction in Mongolia examines Mongolia’s macro and micro economy and budget, poverty, social issues, gender and governance contexts. The analysis considered the constraints to Mongolia’s development and the Australian Aid Program’s capability to assist in addressing them. Recommendations were made taking into account the possible magnitude of aid investment in Mongolia, the position of the Mongolian Government and other relevant stakeholders, and factoring in the effectiveness of external support for addressing economic and development challenges. The analysis places particular emphasis on the extractives and human resource development sectors in Mongolia, recognising the Australian Aid Program’s established investments and reputation in these areas.
The analysis was undertaken between December 2014 and March 2015. The analysis was undertaken by a team of specialists with backgrounds in governance, economics, the private sector, gender and social and poverty analysis. The views and recommendations expressed in the report are those of the consultants and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Australian Government or DFAT.
