Managing Soil Pollution in Ger Areas through Improved On-site Sanitation Project

Project Description
Around one-quarter of Mongolia's population resides on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar, the national capital, within peri-urban communities termed ger areas characterized by limited or no access to urban infrastructure, inadequate disposal of human fecal waste, sanitation-related diseases, and increasing risks of soil and water contamination. The grant will support local livelihoods through improved household sanitation and strengthening the lifecycle for on-site (de-centralized) fecal waste management, including the collection, transport and composting of waste, in collaboration with communities, the private sector, and civil society organizations (CSOs). The project will serve as a model to scale up on-site sanitation in Mongolia and which complements infrastructure development in core urban areas.
