Mongolia: Cold wave 2018

Vooruitgang: Closed
Mensen bereikt: 9000
Budget: € 60000
Looptijd: 2018-02-13 - 2018-05-13


The overall objective is to meet the essential needs of the 2,500 most vulnerable herder households (approximately 9,000 people10) who are affected by severe winter through provision of emergency relief items and/or small amounts of cash. This operation is expected to cover the most essential needs of 1,000 herder households for 40 days with food and animal care kit and the needs of 1,500 herder households for one month with cash support. Mongolia has suffered from severe winter conditions known as Dzud since the last two winters. The extremely harsh
winter that continued after the drought in summer has depleted the herders’ reserves of hay and fodder. Continuous
harsh conditions have put at risk millions of livestock, which are the only source of food, transport and income for almost
half of the Mongolian population. As herders experienced two consecutive droughts throughout the country followed by
severe winters, it did not allow herders enough recovery time to be prepared for this winter. Out of the 20 provinces and one city that are facing extreme winter situation, the DREF operation will target seven of
the most affected provinces. This DREF will target following soums in seven provinces (areas not reached through FbF programme, FAO and PIN):
№ Target provinces Target soums
1 Arkhangai Battsengel, Tsetserleg, Ikhtamir, Tariat, Tsakhir, Khairkhan
2 Bayankhongor Shinejinst, Bayangobi, Zag, Jargalant
