Women and environment

Promoting the role of female farmers and contributing to strengthening their agricultural activities

Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders (AVSF) Mongolia Project supported in 2020


The project

In the rural territories of Mongolia, a country with an extreme continental climate, the population faces societal and environmental challenges which are exacerbated by climate change. In the provinces of Khentii and Arkhangai where 80% of the population depend on its agriculture, pastoralists and market gardeners have to adapt their production methods to farm, live and to generate an income, all whilst preserving natural resources.

The association AVSF, in partnership with the Geres association and the local association Mongolian Women’s Fund, leads a 3-year project aimed at strengthening the role of women in agricultural production systems, and to ensure that concerns of their position and needs are heard by local and national decision-makers. Women will be trained in market gardening, sustainable cashmere production and business management. These women will gain their financial independence and a valuable position in the developing economy.
