Regional workshop on understanding the operational aspects of the drought observation system in Mongolia

17 Sep 2018
Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

ESCAP implemented a project on strengthening Mongolia’s capacity to monitor and warn drought/dzud, together with the National Remote Sensing Center (NRSC) of Information and Research Institute of Meteorology, Hydrology and Environment (IRIMHE) of Mongolia. This has resulted in the installation and operationalization of the Dzud Monitoring System with technical support from the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth (RADI) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Based on the outcome of this project, a regional workshop was held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia to showcase the products and services that the system is delivering to different ministries, agencies and other projects/programmes and how it has been able to enhance the capacity of IRIHME in improving drought/dzud monitoring and early warning for Mongolia.
