MCC Mongolia Rangeland Assessment and Monitoring 2013
Range Management Research
2013 Annual Report
1a.Objectives (from AD-416):
Support implementation and assessment of MCC rangeland agricultural projects in Mongolia.
1b.Approach (from AD-416):
We will continue to work with local collaborators (MCA-Mongolia - Millennium Challenge Account) and under MCC guidance to develop, and support implementation and interpretation of a rangeland monitoring and evaluation system for the Mongolia Compact's Peri-Urban Project. This will include modifying protocols, providing training, evaluating data quality, and providing data analysis and interpretation.
During 2013 we supported field data collection, data entry and summaries for rangeland forage biomass production and utilization in the 5 regions in which MCC Peri-Urban Project is being implemented. We provided training for field crews and data entry teams, completed quality checks, revised the data, and prepared data summaries. This progress report serves as a final report.
