About us

The mission of the Mongolia Water Forum -Us khelts NGO (MWF) is to ensure high-level community engagement and ownership over the environment and water-related actions. Functioning as an environmental think-tank, the MWF has been leading and participating in several research projects in Mongolia, which covers technical assistance, research, and capacity building. Thus, we have extensive experience in the environment, climate change, water resources management, and irrigated agriculture sector. We support national and local activities and events on water, environment, and climate change, including community capacity development and awareness-raising through workshops and training activities. The MWF has contributed to sustainable environmental and water management by building partnerships with government organizations, research institutions, and a wide range of community organizations. Since our establishment, we are active in the environment and water sector in over 10 river basins in Mongolia completing 15 research projects at national and river basin level (e.g. Lake Khuvsgul -Eg River, Ider, Delgermuren, Eree, Kharkhiraa, Turgen, Kherleh, Tuul, Lake Boontsagaan-Baidrag, Lake Khar -Khovd, Galba Uush-Dolood Gobi etc.). 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 and water quality assessment, and training for government and local communities. The MWF brings a highly valuable domestic view through our extensive and proven local experience in the environment and water sector by means of a well-established network of local specialists and partner organizations, familiarity with the customs, practices, and challenges facing environmental and water resources management in Mongolia.
