Mongolia – Dzud Response Planning (as of 22 December 2016)

Geographical prioritization was done by combining the dzud risk index from the National Agency for Meteorology and Environmental Monitoring with underlying poverty data from the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection. The combination of these factors led to the categorization of the 110 affected soums into 4 risk classes.
