    Urban Mongolia

    Two very different and distinct patterns of urban accommodation:

    - 22.5% of the population live in apartments connected to centralized heating, hot and tap water,sewage and electricity.

    - Ger (or tent) areas are growing in all cities due to massive rural-to-urban migration: 60% of the

    population and 80-90% of the poor live here: (i) Poor infrastructure (water supply, sewerage,

    road, flood protection, bus terminal, transportation, school and hospital) (ii) Severe air pollution

    in the winter because of burning coal for cooking and heating (iii) Pit latrines that pollute

    underground water and soil and bad smell (iv) Women and children fetch water to the home (v)

    Health problems and associated economic loss

    Expected Gender-Inclusive Project Outcomes

    Expected Project Outcomes:

    Water supply, sewerage system and sewerage treatment plant will be improved

    and 270,000 people in 6 provinces serviced PUSO will be independent and financially stable.

    128,000 people in 4 ger areas of Ulaanbaatar will be close to the concrete asphalt

    road and sidewalks, lighting and public transportation and will live in a safe,

    accessible and comfortable environment.

    Project Focus on Gender will have multiplier effects:

    Economic/Health: Better access to water will create a more healthy environmentand enable women to spare more time for income-generating activities, andattend to family members

    Education of children: With water kiosks connected to water pipes, children will be

    free from the drudgery of waiting for water trucks and collection so, especiallygirls, can go to school.

    Accessible urban transport/safe mobility: Improvement in ger area roads withsidewalks and street lights will improve mobility of the poor through access topublic transportation and safe walking areas in neighborhoods.

    Challenges vs Achievements

    Salary rate is same for both men andwomen


    There is dominance of male workers as theproject is implemented in infrastructure field

    Men are not interested to attend publicevents or training in sanitation and health

    Women are more interested to attend inpublic events, especially health/sanitation

    It is difficult to maintain equal participation ofmen and women for any trainings/workshopsabout project information in local level

    It is more efficient to disseminateinformation through, media includinglocal TV, newspapers

    Project targeted beneficiaries are not activelyparticipating in workshops/seminars

    It is traditional manner that man must

    be household head.

    There is dominance of male-headed

    households among affected people underthe project.

    Need to arrange or create possibilityto access professional study/trainingcenter

    It is difficult to recruit affected people to workbecause both men and women do not haveprofessional degrees.
