Aligning Mongolia's NDC and SDGs through its national green development policy
Through Mongolia’s efforts in developing policies and interventions towards green growth, particularly the National Green Development Policy (NGDP), the Sustainable Development Vision 2030 (Vision 2030), and the Sustainable Development Outlook of Mongolia (SOM), it has effectively tapped into the synergies between efforts in overcoming developmental challenges and climate change issues. The NGDP
acts as the all-encompassing policy that mainstreams the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into its national policy. The SDGs have been integrated via the Vision 2030 indicators and the SOM framework, while the Mongolian (I)NDC was developed from the NGDP itself. This has consequently resulted in the mainstreaming of SDGs into NDC design.
