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.


3. Progress Report:
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.
